Four days of fun and education for children aged 11 and 12 years old with type 1 diabetes, to enhance understanding and self management. The next camp will be held from 12 to 15 January 2016.
Overview

The next Diabetes WA and PMH camp for 11 and 12 year old children with type 1 diabetes is to be held from 12 to 15 January 2016 at Point Walter Recreation Centre. Camps provide a safe environment for children with type 1 diabetes to develop a greater understanding of how to self manage their condition. Under the strict supervision of health professionals, the children are given the opportunity to participate in physically and educationally challenging activities, and to try new things. 

Camps are a joint initiative of PMH and Diabetes WA. 

There is an opportunity for people to volunteer at the January kids camp as well as the other camps throughout the year. If you would like to know more about how to become involved, please email Community Relations Coordinator Jarnia Davies.
