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. Children should report each day to the School-Age room. Faculty will include Lauren Lanning, Michelle Rago, Mike Schurig, and assorted other adult friends!

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
