Of Continuing Interest

  1. AYUDA (American Youth Understanding Diabetes Abroad, Inc.) and the Fundacion Diabetes Juvenil Ecuador are proud to announce Campo Amigo Ecuador 2005. Campo Amigo, to be held on the beach of Salinas, Ecuador is a fun, safe, and educational seven day overnight camping experience for children with type 1 diabetes between the ages of 5 and 18. AYUDA is looking for both Ecuadorian campers and International youth volunteers to serve as counselors. The dates of Campo Amigo Ecuador are July 31 - August 6, but volunteers are asked to be in Ecuador from July 9 - August 8. For more details about the volunteer program please visit or contact Ben Clements at

  2. If you're considering coming to the Friends for Life: 2005 annual CWD conference this summer, now is the time to make your hotel reservations. Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, where we are holding this summer's conference, is sold out for regular rooms (but not those in CWD's room block) for some of the nights our conference is there -- specifically, the weekend of July 8. While we have quite a few rooms in our room block, they are already 86% reserved. If you reserve your room and find you can't attend, you can always cancel and get your deposit back as long as you cancel 72 hours out from the reservation. To reserve your room, you must call the Disney conference reservations line at 407-939-1020.
