  • What experience do you have in diabetes camps?
    Diathlete has delivered fun and recreational workshops to NHS diabetes teams since 2014. We have been involved in the organisation of international diabetes camps (Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Uganda, Canada) since 2015 and we delivered the first young adults UK camp in 2019 in Gilwell Park where we trained the participants on how to be young advocates in their communities.
  • What should I expect on a LOD Camp?
    A weekend where you will meet other adults living with type 1 diabetes in a mix of indoor and outdoor sessions. Outdoor sessions include archery, kayaking, high and low ropes, team challenges and, of course, a campfire connection. Indoor sessions are interactive and we will have a range of inspiring speakers, to help bring encouragement into diabetes education and discussion.
  • Will there be a medical team on site?
    As it is an adult camp, we do expect the participants to be fully responsible for their diabetes but we do have a team of diabetes dietitians on site to support with carb counting and to answer any questions that you may have. Our team of leaders is DBS cleared.
  • Would there be a fridge to store my insulin?
    Yes we would have a fridge to store insulin if you require to do so. We also recommend to bring a FRIO or cooling wallet with you.
  • Is it okay to attend the camp if I am not very active/fit?
    Yes! The activities can be suited to different levels and we will not push you to do something you would not like to. We do encourage you to try everything as you can get impressed of what you can achieve.
  • What should I bring with me to the camp?
