DRWF, in collaboration with children’s charity Over The Wall, present Camp in the Cloud – a free to attend interactive, online family camp for children living with type 1 diabetes.

An online family activity camp returns on Saturday, 2nd December for young people with type 1 diabetes and their families and carers.

The camp is open to families in England with children aged 0-17 diagnosed with type 1 diabetes – one child in the household must be aged 6-17 years.

Camp in the Cloud is our innovative, inclusive, and engaging virtual programme, where families can experience the magic of a residential, serious fun, camp from the comfort of their home.

The free event is organised by DRWF in collaboration with children’s charity Over The Wall.

Camp in the Cloud aims to provide families with an opportunity to enjoy quality time together whilst taking part in a fun programme of activities and challenges.

Sarah Tutton, DRWF Chief Executive, said: "Our Camps, whether residential or online, provide an amazing safe space to have fun and meet other families affected by type 1 diabetes. A warm and friendly place that encourages Campers to learn and grow in every sense with peer support at its heart."

The virtual event allows families to have a weekend of fun, whilst also enjoying quieter magic moments together and simply taking a break from the comfort of their own home.

A combination of online and real-life activities are accessible on the online event platform.

Virtual campers and their families can interact in real-time with other attendees through secure message boards and fun video calls.

All camp attendees will be sent a ‘Seriously Fun Box’ in the post containing every resource they need to take part in the event activities.

A parent testimonial from a previous event said: “Even though it was an ‘online’ camp, our son Evan was not just sat at a computer on his own. In fact, Camp in the Cloud made us all interact as a family. We all got involved and really enjoyed spending family time together working on all the activities.”
