Out of an abundance of caution towards the coronavirus (COVID-19), California Diabetes Association has decided to not hold San Jose Day Camp in person this summer. While we will be very disappointed to not see you in person, we have created an alternative, Virtual San Jose Day Camp– and we think it’s going to be great!

 

Virtual San Jose Day Camp will be held during the week of August 3-7, 2020, for campers ages 5-13. Returning campers and new faces are welcome! We believe diabetes camp is the best place to make connections with other people living with type 1 diabetes, connections which lead to healthier happier lives.

 

We will offer programming on all 5 days, Monday through Friday, as we do during our normal Day Camp week. This programming will include games, crafts, group activities, and diabetes education. Campers will not be online all day, but will be able to log in at several different times each day for messages and interactive activities, both prerecorded and live.

 

Camp staff will lead group activities and entertainment for campers in secure, password-protected web meetings.

 

Campers with diabetes are welcome to “bring” a friend or family member (age 5-13) to participate in our Virtual San Jose Day Camp.

 

Virtual San Jose Day Camp will have two ways to participate: 

 

For a materials and postage fee of $49 per child, we will mail a “Camp in a Box” kit to your camper before camp. This kit will contain all the craft supplies, game pieces, and educational materials needed to participate in all camp activities- plus a few fun surprises!

(Please note that in order to prepare and ship kits to your camper in time before camp, we must receive your camper’s registration no later than July 1)

 

We know that school closures, shelter in place and social distancing have been hard on our kids and our diabetes community, and that’s why CDA/NDA is determined- and excited!- to offer this new option for summer camp. We want to continue to provide a place for people with diabetes to connect, learn, and grow together, even if we can’t be together in person. I am happy to answer any questions you may have- please feel free to reach out to me!
