Teens should simply report to the designated Teen Room each day at 9:00 a.m. Faculty includes Natalie Bellini, Jim Vail, Nabil Elarbi, and Chris Tull. Teens will be going off-site and outdoors in the afternoons. A signed permission slip and waiver must be completed at registration in order for teens to participate.
Tween Sessions
Activities and discussion groups specifically for tweens (ages 10-12) will be offered on the same schedule as the adult sessions with the same breaks for snacks and meals. These sessions are for tweens with type 1 diabetes as well as their tween siblings and friends.

Elementary Age Sessions
Programming for school-age children (approximately ages 6-9) will be fun and interactive. No "boring stuff" here! Sessions will run on the same schedule as the adults with the same breaks for snacks and meals. All school-age children are welcome. If younger children wish to participate, they need to have a parent or sitter with them. Pool time will be part of each day's activities, so make sure your child has a swimsuit! Children should report each day to the designated Elementary room. Faculty will include Lauren Lanning, Michelle Rago, Tricia Stewart, Brian Foster, and assorted other adult friends!
Childcare
Childcare for potty-trained children ages 3-5 will be available. CDE Mary Babin will be the lead person for childcare. Please talk with her on Friday evening if your preschooler will be in childcare during the weekend.

If a parent would like to volunteer to assist with the school-age children's activities, we would love the help!

Please contact Laura Billetdeaux to ask about volunteering: phone 734-428-8265 or email Laura.Billetdeaux@childrenwithdiabetes.com
