School-Age Children's Sessions
Programming for school-age children (approximately ages 6-9) will be fun and interactive. No "boring stuff" here! Sessions will run on the same schedule as the adults with the same breaks for snacks and meals. All school-age children are welcome. If younger children wish to participate, they need to have a parent or sitter with them. Children should report each day to the School-Age room. Faculty will include Lauren Lanning, Michelle Rago, Mike Schurig, and assorted other adult friends!
 
Childcare
Childcare for potty-trained children ages 3-5 will be available. CDE Mary Babin will be the lead person for childcare. Please talk with her on Friday evening if your preschooler will be in childcare during the weekend.

If a parent would like to volunteer to assist with the school-age children's activities, we would love the help!

Please contact Laura Billetdeaux to ask about volunteering: phone 734-428-8265 or email Laura.Billetdeaux@childrenwithdiabetes.com
