“Diabetes Camps Victoria (DCV) is a consortium of Diabetes Australia – Vic (DA–Vic), Monash Health and the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Each year, DCV facilitates seven camps for over 250 children aged four to 17 years with type 1 diabetes.
Diabetes Camps Victoria is funded by DA–Vic, the peak consumer body and leading charity representing all people affected by diabetes and those at risk. DA–Vic relies heavily on the generosity of caring community members and supporters to help fund diabetes education, awareness activities and research.
Philosophy of diabetes camps:
At DCV, our inspirational goal is to teach young people to manage their diabetes in a fun, safe and supportive environment, and to promote a culture of independence through adventure by sharing the power of peer support, positive thinking, emotional support, development of self-management skills and by being aware that diabetes is not the primary focus when having fun.”
