Are there activites for my child or teen?

Yes, there is a T1D Teen Time session for T1D Teens only and a Kids Zone. Both are hosted by T1D groups and will have medical staff. We will send follow up information to all parents in October with more information about these two programs and the expectations.

T1D Teen Time 10:00am-12:00pm--Teens ages 13-18 with type 1 diabetes have the opportunity to connect and share in fun activites. The Teen Zone will be lead by Eric Tozer of the Diabetes Sports Project and other T1D athletes. This is for T1Ds only. Please wear active shoes as teens will be outside (weather permitting) for a part the time. Teens will be back in time for lunch with their parents and a chance to engage in the afternoon sessions.

Kids Zone 8:30am-4:00pm--Kids, ages 4 and older, can join Camp Leo volunteers for a day of fun activities. Space is limited.
