Welcome to ConnecT1D
The mission of ConnecT1D is to connect people living with Type 1 Diabetes through programs, social networking, educational meetings and support activities at every stage of their lives.
ConnecT1D is founded on the basic principle that people with Type 1 Diabetes manage their disease better when they have strong connections and support from others in the T1D community. We are a volunteer-run and managed nonprofit organization, driven by passionate and engaged volunteers who share a belief that social and emotional support is essential to diabetes management and well-being.
ConnecT1D works with other community partners like JDRF, Camp Leo and health providers on outreach and programs. In addition, ConnecT1D offers regular programs for
- Teens (ages 13-18)
- Tweens (ages 9-12)
- Athletes via the ConnecT1D GetFit program
- Competitive athletes via Team ConnecT1D
- Parents of kids with Type 1 Diabetes
- The T1D community at large

The heart of ConnecT1D is reflected in our annual signature event, ConnecT1D Family Camp. This unique event targets kids 12 years old and under, and includes their entire families. This supportive and impactful weekend changes how families feel about dealing with the stresses and lifestyle that healthy management requires. We’ve updated the ConnecT1D Family Camp page with a recap of the event and lots of pictures to memorialize the fantastic event.
Our 4th annual ConnecT1D Family Camp is coming up in October 2015. Be sure to check out the ConnecT1D Family Camp page to see a recap of last year’s sold-out event. Registration for 2015 will be opening soon, be sure to watch so you don’t miss out.
