About this event

When you register for one of our camps, you're signing up for more than a day on the mountain. You're joining a community of people who "get it" — a tight-knit community who knows what it's like to live with Type 1 diabetes every single day. We're pushing the limits of the disease in a safe environment, learning that anything is possible with T1D, and we want you to join us!

Riding On Insulin is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by pro backcountry snowboarder Sean Busby. We've taught thousands of kids & teens with Type 1 diabetes how to ski & snowboard, surf and mountain bike since 2010 and we welcome participants of all ability and experience levels. We use an honor-based tier pricing system. All tiers include a tee, beanie, swag, lift ticket, lunch, instruction, medical supervision & more.

What's Included:

1. Virtual Orientation

We kick off the weekend with a *LIVE* 60-minute virtual orientation with our families and coaches. We play a few games, answer any questions and hear from our partners about the latest and greatest in insulin pump therapy and CGM technology. We also have a Certified Diabetes and Education Specialist on every call to answer any questions regarding blood sugar management, temp basal, AID systems, etc!

2. Shred Box

​Who doesn't love getting fun mail?! Your camper will receive a custom designed Riding On Insulin box full of sweet swag including:
- ROI camp tee
- ROI embroidered beanie
- Stickers, wristbands, keychain & more
We take pride in our original graphic designs and high quality, durable shirts and hoodies so you can wear them for years to come. You can pre-order hoodies and other items when you select your registration tier.

3. Epic Camp Day

The virtual session and Shred Boxes are just the beginning! On camp day, we split into groups of 4-6 campers, which are led by our T1D coaches and volunteers. A typical schedule looks like:
8:30 AM. — Check-in for families
9:00 AM. — Campers hit the mountain with their groups
10:00 AM — Casual Parent discussion at the ROI home base
12:00 PM — Lunch as a group
12:45 PM — Another group check, and kids head out for more riding/skiing
3:30 PM — Group photo & goodbyes! Campers head with parents to return rentals, if applicable.

First timer? There's no better place to learn how to ride! We provide a safe, fun learning environment and a memorable introduction to skiing or snowboarding for those with Type 1 diabetes and their siblings/friends. All of our coaches either have T1D themselves, or love someone with T1D as well!

Experienced skier or snowboarder? Campers are grouped together based on age and experience level. More advanced groups spend the day honing their skills with one of our seasoned coaches while exploring the mountain.
