Camp Details
Our upcoming Type 1 Diabetes camp is sponsored by the Manly Sea Eagles Foundation and will be for children, aged 12-16 years.  

The camp will run from Sunday 5th to the morning of Thursday 9th of July, during the second week of school holidays. The camp will be held at Royal Far West in Manly and each child attending will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
 
The camp will include information sessions for children and their parents about exercise and physical activities, management of food and carbohydrates, management of medication and art therapy relating to the social and emotional aspects of living with Type 1 Diabetes.

All accommodation, meals, information sessions and activities will be provided free of charge but families will have to provide their own transport to and from Manly.

It is hoped that the activities will include; attending a training session with the Sea Eagles, Taronga Zoo, rock climbing and other activities suitable for the age group. 

The afternoon of Sunday 5th July there is a Manly Sea Eagles home game which the group will attend. The Sea Eagles players are also quite heavily involved with these camps as one of their players, Brett Stewart, has Type 1 Diabetes and is very keen to support and mentor kids with Diabetes. Around 10 – 12 children with their parent/guardian attend the camp.
