T1D is a relentless and exhausting disease and there is not a minute that goes by when I’m not thinking about my blood sugar. Somehow being at DTC normalizes this feeling. Somehow I found this tribe of people who get it and have seemed to make it easier than it would be and I am […]

“I couldn’t have imagined what DTC would be like. From the jump, the care of the genuine team, and the environment they create, for all campers is unbelievable. I felt safe, I felt like I belonged. I could let my guard down and be vulnerable. I loved connecting with other T1Ds from all over the […]

Everything from the incredible list of guest speakers to the wealth of resources they provided was beyond anything I could have imagine. And even more than just […]


I was always athletic and active, even early on in my diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes. But along the way my body changed, and I was no longer able to keep my glucose in a range that supported the active lifestyle to which I was accustomed. I started cutting my workouts short. I was soon […]
