Get Pumped for the Middle School Retreat!
Let’s be honest. Life with Type 1 Diabetes is never easy. The endless checks, the highs and lows, and even the questions about your pump and CGM - they all get old. It’s even tougher if you feel like you’re the only one dealing with it. That’s why ConnecT1D is offering the Middle School Retreat, THE summer experience for young teens with Type 1 Diabetes. It’s happening this August at Camp Warm Beach and we want you to be there.
Registering for the Middle School Retreat
We’re inviting 20 teens entering 6th-9th grade to Camp Warm Beach for three days and two nights of fun and adventure. We’ll hike, hit the high-ropes course, howl at the moon, and huddle in small groups to talk about the ups and downs of life with Type 1 Diabetes.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the cost?
It is our desire to never turn a camper away due to financial concerns. Retreat fees span a 3-tiered system. Full Fare for those who can afford it ($300), Subsidized Fees ($150) for families that need partial campership support, and Scholarship Funds for campers facing economic hardship. Scholarship applications are available (note, proof of income required at time of application and $30 deposit required to hold spot while processing applications).
How many Campers will be at the Retreat?
In our kick off year, we have spots for 20 campers. This smaller size group will allow attendees a chance to get to know the whole group well! This also means that the Retreat may fill quickly, so if you plan to attend, we recommend registering right away. We will have a wait list when the Retreat fills.
Where is the Retreat Located?
Warm Beach Camp is located about 50 miles north of Seattle, near Stanwood, Washington. The camp address is 20800 Marine Drive, Stanwood, WA 98292
What do I need to bring?
Warm Beach Camp provides group bunk style housing with shared bathrooms. Bed linens and towels are provided, but don’t forget your favorite personal toiletries. All meals and snacks are provided.
Campers must bring all diabetes supplies to camp.
We will have adults and mentors on hand that can assist with basic care such as treating lows. We will also have full time medical support on site throughout the entire Camp to advise and support campers in diabetes care.
