Teen Sessions
Activities and discussion groups specifically for teens (ages 13+) will be offered on the same schedule as the adult sessions with the same breaks for snacks and meals. These sessions are for teens with type 1 diabetes as well as their teen siblings and friends. Everyone is welcome! Teens should simply report to the Teen Room (York A and B) each day at 9:00 a.m. Faculty includes Natalie Bellini, Katie Daugherty, Jim Vail, and Chris Tull. Teens will be going off-site and outdoors in the afternoons. A signed permission slip and waiver must be completed at registration in order for teens to participate.
 
Tweener Sessions
Activities and discussion groups specifically for tweeners (ages 10-12) will be offered on the same schedule as the adult sessions with the same breaks for snacks and meals. These sessions are for tweeners with type 1 diabetes as well as their tweener siblings and friends. Tweeners should simply report to Trinity I and II each day at 9:00 a.m. Faculty includes Melissa Ringley and Kim Kelly. Tweeners may be going off-site (not far) or outdoors in the afternoons; they also may have pool time - so bring a swimsuit! A signed permission slip and waiver must be completed at registration in order for tweeners to participate.
 
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. Pool time will be part of each day's activities, so make sure your child has a swimsuit! Children should report each day to Trinity III and IV. Faculty will include Lauren Lanning, Michelle Rago, Gayle Schurig, Elizabeth Vanover, Brian Foster, and Tricia Stewart!
 
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. Childcare will be in Trinity V, adjacent to the elementary area (they do a lot of activities together).

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 (Eastern time) during business hours Monday through Friday, or email anytime at laura.billetdeaux@childrenwithdiabetes.com.
