Youth & FAmily support
Family and youth days
There's lots going on every year, from full on family days such as outdoor Lazertag in a mini pine forest to a couple of hours of mayhem at Flip City. For our older youth we have Go-Karts, Paintball and if you are a little bit creative we have workshops for you too, Jewellery making and bath bomb creating to name a few. We're always on the lookout for new things to try.
Join us at an outdoor adventure camp, meet other youth living with diabetes, be in the majority for a change, and have a go at archery, go carts, horse riding, rifle shooting, rock wall climbing and other activities. Bring your adults and siblings so that they can have a go too: they don't even have to stay in a tent!
Family Camps are held bi-annually in March or April. They are held in an outdoor adventure camp and allow the person with diabetes and the family/whanau to participate in a range of activities and connect with other families who have a member with diabetes.
18 - 30 year olds
Want to meet other young adults with diabetes? Join us at one of our organised coffees or dinner, our shout. Take some time to connect and chat with others who understand what its like.
Biannual Youth Camp
Join other kids with diabetes, get to make friends and take part in outdoor activities with your team and the support of a youth leader: and yes, even your youth leader has diabetes. Eat great food, kick a ball around, talk up a storm. This is the place to be if you want fun!
