Type 1 Oregon

T1D Buddy Camp is the primary program of Type 1 Oregon, a non-profit formed in early 2018 to support the kids, teens, and families in our T1D community with programs and outreach. Originally founded in 2014 as On Belay TYpe 1 Diabetes Camp, with Camp Tamarack's On Belay TY Foundation as our fiscal sponsor, we are excited to be offering our 6th session of T1D Buddy Camp on June 25–28, 2019. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and opt in to our email list to stay up-to-date on current activities.

Ava had the most fun a girl can have and let's take note....I don't let her out of my sight, so this freedom was much needed :) she loved the food, got a little home sick but made friends and had fun....I have one happy baby girl tonight!

Get Involved

The summer 2019 session will run from June 25–28. Registration will open on January 1.

Buddies aren't required, but they sure make the transition to camp a little easier and more fun, especially for T1D kids who may not have ventured far from their parents' care since diagnosis.

Whether you'd like to get involved with program planning, fundraising, or could take some time to be a medical staff volunteer at this summer's session, we want to hear from you!

And last but not least, since T1D Buddy Camp strives to offer need-based scholarships to every family that qualifies, your donation makes a difference to a child.
