Why we exist.

We know that being an emerging young adult is hard and adding type 1 diabetes into the mix makes it even harder. Did you know that when teens/young adults with T1D hang out with other teens/young adults with T1D their overall glucose control tends to improve? This age group is oftentimes heavily influenced by their peers, and when positive influence surrounds them, diabetes becomes less of a burden. We exist to educate, encourage and empower our campers with the tools to live life to the fullest all while being independent.

What we do.

At the Camp Endres Link Retreat, we allow our campers to practice their independence with their T1D management while being monitored by a team of healthcare professionals. Our campers choose the activities and guest speakers they wish to attend and are encouraged to make decisions on their own. Our staff ensures that every camper is safe when they are with us and are having the best experience possible. If you would like more information on what we do here, please email Cada@dsok.net.
