If you are ready to learn how to better manage your diabetes, have fun and develop friendships for life, then you are ready for this camp.
Absolutely!! This camp is designed to reach out to adults of all ages and all fitness and athletic levels.

In addition, we keep the number of campers on site at a level that allows for much individualized attention throughout the week.
No. We maintain a small camp so that we can reach out to participants at all levels of fitness.

Training and exercise gear for each day of camp, as well as comfortable leisure clothes for lectures, down time and relaxation. DTC offers lots of exercise choices, but all are optional. Based on your planned activity, you may want to bring: your bike and associated gear (rental options may be available at camp; bike helmets are required for all cycling activity), a swimsuit, swim caps, two goggles, swim towels, running shoes, running attire, general fitness/workout clothes, and a water bottle. Feel free to bring whatever other training tools/gear that you would like to use. Sometimes the lecture rooms can feel chilly–a hoodie or sweater would be a good idea.
In the spirit of the camp, you’ll be served healthy food provided by our host facility – breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and beverages are included every day. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements.
Yes, we provide snacks, rapid acting carbs and drinks. We encourage you to bring your own if you have favorites.
We recommend you ship your bike, but you could look into bringing it with you on the airplane with your baggage. If shipping, we suggest shipping across the country via FedEx ground (safer, more reliable and faster than UPS). It generally takes 5-7 days max by FedEx ground to deliver the bike. We recommend packing it into a cardboard box from a bike shop and, for reinforcement, putting the entire cardboard box into another slightly larger cardboard box.
If you are not comfortable packing/unpacking the bike yourself, you can ask a local shop to pack it for you. If you have more specific questions, please contact us directly.
No problem. We offer multiple training and fitness sessions each day such as general fitness, yoga and more so you can participate in whatever interests you. However, we have coaches that will help you feel much more comfortable on a bike or in the water in just a day or two. If you are looking for great general fitness activities or want to learn a new skill, this would be the place to do it!
An important part of the camp is both rest and the camaraderie of meeting and learning from other campers. With this in mind, there are daily opportunities for free time to relax and enjoy time with the other campers.
