I am looking for camps for my son to attend in BC. He is going to be 7 in a few months, so we might not do them this year, but would like info on camps to look at next year. Any thoughts of ideas from previous children that have attended or have helped out at them.
I believe the Canadian Diabetes Association only has one organized summer camp for kids in BC, held at Gibson on the Sunshine Coast.
Follow this link for more information:
You are looking for Camp Kakhamela.
There are two camps offered. A family camp and an overnight camp that the child attends without family.
We attended two years ago and my kids enjoyed it (9 and 6 at the time). For the family camp I know there is a nurse, doctor and dietitian on site. The nurse and doctor are usually from Children's Hospital.
I have been trying to locate and not successful ...when I attended the CDA Advocacy /Provincial Election session March 2 in Vancouver ( Richmond ) we were advised by the CDA Regional Chair , that a Camp was to be held this year ( first time ) in Prince George ...my insulin pump Nurse has volunteered at Camps , so have a few others I know. dcamps.ca , call 1-800-Banting ( 226-8464) facebook.com/cda.dcamps ; twitter @cda_dcamps
One of my big reasons ( Kids Camps ) why I participate with Team Diabetes and fundraise for the CDA .
