Does anyone know of an adult camp for t1d? How about a treatment center?
I’m not aware of an adult T1 camp, but that is a great idea! Last year I heard about some kind of women’s diabetes conference for both types in LA area. You might want to check with Joslin Diabetes Center to see if they have any resources.
Never thought about attending one for T1 adults, but am interested in potentially volunteering at one for kids/teenagers, so have been trying to find out more about what options are out there.
It does seem like the adult “camp” idea is not so prevalent, but here are some leads for you to pursue:
https://diabetessisters.org/pods-meetups (not exactly camps, but should provide a similar community of support)
http://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/blog/diabetes-camp-for-adults/ (can’t find info more recent than 2013, but maybe you can contact the organization mentioned to ask them)
https://www.diabetescamps.org/camp-finder (maybe most promising since they list at least a few organizations that offer adult camps).
Good luck in this pursuit and maybe you can let us know if you find one that works for your needs?
You can always become a counselor for a kids camp! Thats what i do and i have just as much fun as the campers if not more!!
