In 2020 COVD-19 forced us to pivot and find NEW ways to offer DTC camps, programs and services to our community. We had to cancel our in-person camps, but we couldn't live with the idea of not learning, training and CONNECTING with the diabetes community. So, we created the V Camp programming. We know this experience is different from our in-person camps, but we learned that we can provide a unique and life-changing program dedicated to empowering the community of people with diabetes to thrive virtually. As a matter of fact, virtual programs were so pepular that V CAMPS have been permanently added to our schedules.
The V Camps were created when we could not be together in person to continue to provide support and education for people living with diabetes. Virtually, we were able to learn, train and connect the DTC experts with new and alumni campers. We realized that virtual camps offer unique value and have added them permanently to our camp and program offerings.
The V Camp is founded in DTC's core principles around diabetes management for exercise and sports and offers the same great information and community that our in-person camps offer. Camps range from one to three days.
Mini V Camps are immersive, one-day virtual camp experiences for our community. These camp experiences will take a deeper dive into one specific area of interest. Focus area examples include a Mental Skills Mini V, Nutrition Mini V, Technology Mini V and Diabetes Management for Exercise, Sport Mini V and Teen Mini V.
