ICD Sports Camp Niagara
July 25-29, 2022
Our Sports Camps are multi-sport day camps that provide diabetes support, education, mentoring and normalization, with awesome workouts, skill development and a whole lot of summer camp fun for all ability levels.
Incorporating sports skills and drills, challenge circuits, carb-counting, diabetes management support and great diabetes discussions each day, not to mention mentorship from our youth leaders and important connections to peers - we like to think our camps have something for everyone.
Regional on site Sports Camps are open to children with and without type 1 diabetes aged 5-15 each week, in an inclusive framework to allow T1Ds to participate alongside their peers. Campers aged 13-15 years can take part in our integrated leadership development program. Youth 16+ are welcome to apply to volunteer! Our team includes passionate leaders and world class athletes who can provide participants with knowledge of life with T1D that can help them reach their goals. Participants will get active as a group and dive into a variety of sports and exercise while managing diabetes together. ICD is a leader in exercise and diabetes with experts in the science, who talk the talk and athletes who walk the walk.
Friends and siblings are welcome to join! Camps are full day, drop off programs that run from 9am to 4pm. Before and after care may be available. Campers will be in multi-age groups according to ratios of 2:8.
Coaches and peers with T1D who share the same tasks and obstacles to success, create an immersive environment to empower growth, develop independence, self-confidence and communication skills for youth as the routines they are required to live with are now all around them.
Communication and Development
Our goals are to connect with parents/caregivers at the start and end of each day to capture any directions from parents for the day and follow through with a flexible support plan. Any issues would be taken on by our team onsite. We track all tests, snacks and insulin captured on our log sheets integrated with activities to provide a daily print out with pointers for potential adjustments, when needed. We are flexible with your needs and can build that confidence over the course of our programs.
While we do not intend to take the diabetes management away from youth attending our camps, we do provide structured support to ensure testing and insulin decisions are being made with an individualized commitment to support any aspect of diabetes management that enables the child to join and grow. Whether that is delivering insulin whenever needed, carb counting, site changes, pump problem solving, or decisions on treatment.
We will reach out to our registered participants with any changes to our program in response to public health guidelines.

Our skull logo was designed by founder Chris Jarvis when he and 11 type one teammates took on the Canadian Death Race. One of the world's toughest ultramarathons in the Rocky Mountains, the team covered 445 km in just 24 hours. The crossed needles signify that insulin allows us to take on any challenge, in the gym, in sport and on the trail.
