Junior and senior kids camps
Since 2009, Diabetes Queensland has been funding organisations
and health services across Queensland to deliver camps for children
with diabetes. Diabetes Queensland Camp Grants Program will provide
funding to Camp providers who can deliver Junior Camps (children
age 11 years and under) and / or a Senior Camp (children age 12 -
17 years). The Camp programs are to be age appropriate, with
separate programs for Junior and Senior Camps.
Children living with type 1 diabetes may go through a
rollercoaster of emotions while growing up - frustration, anger,
sometimes depression and often isolation because not everyone
around them understands what life is like with diabetes. A
type 1 diabetes diagnosis not only affects the entire family, but
every part of a child's life.
Diabetes Queensland wants to support children and families
through the type 1 diabetes journey - and offering funding for
organisations to deliver camps is one way we do
By providing funding towards diabetes camps, Diabetes
Queensland enables children with type 1 diabetes to meet and share
their experiences with other children who are living with the same
condition, while also improving their skills and knowledge in
diabetes management. Participants learn about balancing eating,
physical activity plans and insulin requirements through a mix of
fun activities and educational exercises.
