Massachusetts Junior Coaches Training Camp 2017
Teens will attend this two-day intensive training camp where they will improve their own personal ski/snowboard skills, develop an introductory ability to teach others how to ski or snowboard, and most importantly, will learn how to be a mentor and role model for other kids living with type 1 diabetes. Participants in this unique camp will become part of the official Riding On Insulin Junior Coaches Team, will have official Junior Coaches gear, and will have their name, a short bio and a photo posted on the Junior Coaches Team page on the Riding On Insulin website.
Who can come: Participants with type 1 diabetes and their siblings/friends (type 3’s!), ages 14-17 are welcome to attend this one-of-a-kind event! Participants must have at leastan intermediate ability level. For skiers, that means making parallel turns on Blue runs. For a snowboarder, that means linking turns on Blue runs.

You’re able to pay $75 more toward a registration fee than Tier 3. We appreciate your gift. This extra money allows us to fund the Tier 3 pricing attendees, as well as additional scholarships to camp.

You’re able to pay $100 more toward a registration fee than Tier 2. We appreciate your gift. This extra money allows us to fund the Tier 3 and Tier 2 pricing attendees, as well as additional scholarships to camp.
All costs of Riding On Insulin considered, it costs about $555 per child to run a Riding On Insulin camp. Could you take your own child skiing or snowboarding for less than this? Yes. Will your experience include a team of nurses, volunteers, and role models living with T1D, and an enthusiastic staff ready to make it a day you and your child will never forget? Probably not! Whatever you choose, know that every little bit helps — and we considering everyone who registers, no matter the cost a part of the ROI family!
