Why should I attend a camp?

What to expect

You'll have the opportunity to participate in some fantastic activities, which will enhance many different skills sets like problem solving, team work, independence, decision making and creativity all of which are great life skills which help you in your diabetes management and throughout your life.

You will be taking part in an exciting and action packed activities programme where you will be encouraged (not pressured) to participate in as many of the activities as you feel you are able to do.

Why attend a camp?

You will be attending camp with 29 other children of the same age group who also have type 1 diabetes, it's a fantastic opportunity to make some life long friendships. Attending these camps will also help you with your self confidence and managing your diabetes whilst doing activities. You can also learn a lot from being around your peers whilst in a safe managed environment.


Why offer your child a fantastic opportunity to attend one of our camps?

Here are just a few of the benefits your child could get by attending one of our camps

Develops independence

It’s a great way to encourage self-development and also develop independence, kids are empowered at camp to take care of themselves, with guidance from camp staff. Bedtimes are set (but not always stuck to!) and schedules are pre planned, but children still have to get themselves up and ready, make their beds and find their way to the dinning room and activities. And kids a little too attached to mum and dad can learn how to trust themselves to make decisions and take care of themselves.

Instills leadership skills

It teaches them important leadership skills, camps allow kids to make natural choices as leaders of a team whilst doing there activities. These kids are less likely to be affected by peer pressure and more likely to set the pace and tone for other kids – and feel empowered in tasks they take on throughout their lives.

Gives wonderful memories

Camp builds good memories for the future, kids have tons of memories of the good times, silly shenanigans and fun activities. It’s a time of discovery and self-improvement that stays with children long into adulthood.

Gets them active

These camps help kids learn how to be kids again, In this technology-filled world, camps cut back on distractions. We ban mobile phones and computers throughout the daytime and offer a small window of 30 minute in the evening for the kids to use there mobiles for a quick phone call home if they wish, so kids can truly take advantage of all camp time has to offer. That means those prone to sit around and text or play video games are forced to get up – and get moving!

Develop interests

Camps are a nurturing environment for a child to explore activities and programs that could turn into lifelong passions, with so much to do at camp (archery, swimming, canoeing, crafts, etc.), there are many fun activities for kids to discover.
That’s why it’s the perfect place for your child to tap into an interest that he or she may want to carry on after camp is over.

Occupies the summer

It gives kids something to look forward to in the school holidays and breaks up the down time away from school. It also offers fun, excitement and lessons that last.

What's the cost?

The full price for your child to attend camp is £199
