All 2022 Winter Camps reached full capacity 2023 Registration opens August 1, 2022
We've taught thousands of kids & teens with T1D how to ski & snowboard, surf and mountain bike since 2010.
Riding On Insulin welcomes people of all ability and experience levels.
First timer?There's no better time to start! We provide a safe, fun learning environment and a memorable introduction to skiing or snowboarding. All of our coaches have T1D themselves, or love someone with T1D.
Experienced skier or snowboarder? You'll rip turns all day with an advanced group -- honing your skills with one of our seasoned coaches while exploring the mountain.
When you register for one of our camps, you're signing up for more than a day on the mountain -- you're joining a community of people who get it. They understand what it's like to live with Type 1 diabetes, and they're pushing the limits of the disease in a safe environment, learning that anything is still possible with T1D.
Looking forward to 2023, you can expect:
We kick off the weekend with a *LIVE* 60-minute virtual orientation with our families and coaches. We play a few games, answer any questions and hear from our partners about the latest and greatest in insulin pump therapy and CGM technology. We also have a Certified Diabetes and Education Specialist on every call to answer any questions regarding blood sugar management, temp basal, AID systems, etc.!
Who doesn't love getting fun mail?! Your camper will receive a custom designed Riding On Insulin box full of sweet swag, like a camp shirt, beanie, wristbands, stickers, & much more. We take pride in our original graphic designs and high quality, durable shirts and hoodies so you can wear them for years to come. You can pre-order hoodies, caps, gaiters and other items when you register.
Epic Camp Day Experience
The virtual session and Shred Boxes are just the beginning! On camp day, we split into groups of 4-7 campers, which are led by our T1D coaches and volunteers. A typical schedule looks like:
8:00 a.m. — Volunteers report to the designated meeting place
8:30 a.m. — Check-in for families
9:00 a.m. — Campers hit the mountain with their groups as soon as everyone in the group is ready
10:00 a.m. — Parent roundtable at the ROI home base
12:00 p.m. — Lunch as a group (parents are welcome to sit with kids)
12:45 p.m. — Another group check, and kids head out for more riding/skiing
3:45 p.m. — Group photo & goodbyes! Campers head with parents to return rentals, if applicable. * Schedule varies based on the location of the camp
