Parent

Camp Carowanis provides parents with a time of rest in complete confidence. Campers are supervised by a team of mostly TD1 instructors and a 24-hour medical team. Fred provides financial assistance to each child who attends camp and increases the contribution for less fortunate families.

Teenager

A stay at Camp Carowanis is an opportunity to make meaningful and lasting friendships with other teens who share the same daily challenges. It is also an opportunity to learn more about oneself and about managing one’s diabetes. Exciting excursions and memorable moments are part of the journey.

Child

At Camp Carowanis, children gain independence and realize that they are not alone in living with diabetes. It is a place where no young person feels different. It is also a great opportunity to meet new friends and enjoy a variety of fun activities.
