I am a volunteer with the Canadian Diabetes Association and want to let everyone know of the upcoming celebration for the CDA's "Camp Kakhamela" here in BC. Camp was an amazing experience for me (I still talk about it and it was 30+ years ago)and made me realize that there were lots of other kids having to deal with this disease...If you were a camper, medical staff, volunteer you are welcome to come out and celebrate...
September 15th 11:30am-4:00pm at the Richmond Olympic Oval

CDA Kids Camps ...one of my reasons , why I participate with Team Diabetes and raise funds for the Association ...and plan to continue as long as I am able , so more kids can go to Camps ...a very safe place and a chance for the Parents to have a break !!

Thank you svkidd for posting !

The back of the Camp T-shirt says it all .Regretfully I will not attend , due to distance ...my reason for fund raising through Team Diabetes however goes on .Dr. John Hunt , Co founder and Medical Director , 1962 will be on hand !...Have FUN all .

Tomorrow the celebration in Richmond , BC
I read about 17 year young hockey player Anthony Ast, Camper in the Province News paper and located the link to the Courier paper http://www.vancourier.com/sports/Diabetes+doesn+stop+giant+hockey+d...


Do you have any information about these camps?? It's the first I have heard of it and it might be something our little guy might like to do.


the info is on the CDA site, registration is fairly early in the year - they also have a family camp at the end of the summer

I second what SuzP said , Theo ...do give Canadian Diabetes Ass'n , Vancouver a call ? ...I think one has to have reached the age of 7 to attend Camp ??...it gives Caregivers ( Moms and Dads ) a very important break too !

I sent emails out back around the time of this post, I have yet to get any responses back from anyone.

at Theo ...did you call the Association at 1-800-665-6526 and if you are local 604.732.1331 ...apologies, I don't have an extension number ...please let me know , if you like me to find out ...thanks
