Join us for the ultimate diabetes camping experience for the young at heart…  Camp Endres GETAWAY!

Did you attend diabetes camp as a kid? Did you ever want to attend diabetes camp, but didn’t?  Do you ever feel like you want to just get away from everyday life for a short period so you could give your diabetes the attention it deserves?

Are you in need of:

  • A diabetes camp reunion?
  • Diabetes Rehab?
  • A break from your boring diabetes routine?

If you are 19 years or older, join us at the ultimate place for young adults (and not so young adults) who have type 1 diabetes. It’s a Camp Endres Getaway!

  • Form new friendships and bonds with others who share similar life experiences,
  • Talk with people who “get it” and “get you.” You know what I’m sayin’.
  • Have questions that you are not sure who to ask? When it comes to diabetes, no topic will be off limits. Engage in open conversations and get answers to those questions you have been afraid to ask.
  • Have some fun and relax. Take a look at the lighter side of T1D. If you didn’t know there was a lighter side to T1D – Camp Endres Getaway is the get away you need!

A: No. It’s camp….for people with type 1 diabetes (T1D)
