At D-Camps, children enjoy an authentic camp experience while having all of their diabetes needs met by a team of skilled medical professionals. For fun and skill building, our awesome program team leads the way. Take a look at what our D-Camps has to offer at www.dcamps.ca.
Our medical staff includes: endocrinologists, doctors, nurses, dietitians as well as health-care students, residents and interns. Together, they form a support network to help campers manage their diabetes more independently.
For our program staff, we are always looking for team members who show enthusiasm, dedication, initiative, and the ability to use their imaginations to turn camp into a place of magic and possibility. Certain skills and certifications are also required for specific roles. As teamwork is the cornerstone of all camps, we strive to create an environment where everyone works together to provide healthy and enriching experiences for each and every one of our campers.
Applicants for both our medical and program staff must enjoy working with children and teens in an outdoor environment and be willing to learn about and respect the complexities of type 1 diabetes.
