A weekend of adventure for the whole family

Conferences, workshops, animation
and ...some surprises!

Fred, the Diabetic Children’s Resource Foundation and Camp Carowanis are pleased to invite you to the first edition of the T1D Discovery Corner, an event that will bring together families, health professionals and camp counsellors for conferences, workshops, and a host of activities.

For parents, it’s an opportunity to get information from health professionals in an informal setting. Youth will also be able to connect with the Camp Carowanis team. But most of all, the DT1 Discovery Corner is an opportunity to meet other families and share experiences and tips on how to deal with certain situations. It’s an event not to be missed!

The DT1 Discovery Corner will take place:
