Teen Weekend 2021
May 14-16 & October 15-17
Are you a Type 1 high school teen who would like to spend a weekend away with other teens just like yourself? Then you won’t want to miss our CHMK Teen Weekend!
Young adults will create valuable connections and develop a great support system through fun teambuilding and camp activities, great speakers, an inclusive environment, and open group discussions on a wide variety of important T1D topics including driving, transition from high school to college or workforce, alcohol, the importance of mental health and more. Participants will learn valuable life lessons from other T1 peers and educators and be able to have open and honest conversations that may be difficult to have in a home environment.
The program is open to all T1 teens ages 13-18, who are in high school. Participants are also encouraged to a young adult friend or sibling as long as they are ages 13-18 and in high school as well.
Registration is $25/camper and includes meals, snacks, lodging, and program supplies. Space is limited to the first 25 participants. If you have any questions or are in need of additional information, please call our office at 440-739-4095.
Teen Weekend participants must bring their own diabetes supplies and any other prescribed or over-the-counter medications.
