DYF Adult Programs 2023


“Anytime I can be with fellow people with T1D, I love it, because nobody GETS IT the same! I have learned so many tips, tricks and hacks from my fellow T1D folks. I also love hearing the latest in meds, technology, techniques and resources, from a very dedicated and knowledgeable team. This was worth every minute! These speakers are top in this field of treating and researching Type 1. Very well done, and thank you.”

“DYF’s Adult Retreat is a no-judgment zone to learn and share. Whether you do multiple daily injections or you’ve been looping for years, there’s something for everyone, surrounded by people who GET you.”

“In a single weekend, I made new friends, re-connected with old, learned new things about T1D and had the best time. I need more weekends like this!”

Pricing and registration information will be available December 2022.

Tiered Pricing & Scholarship Information

The Adult Retreat is for ages 18 and up, this weekend program will re-invigorate you, connect you with other T1D adults, and allow you to brush up your diabetes management skills.

Our first T1D Adult Retreat was in the summer of 2018, and it was a hit from the minute we opened registration! This weekend is a place of camaraderie, support, education, and fun for adults (18+) with type 1 diabetes. Even better, support systems are welcome, and we encourage spouses, parents, and friends to come along and learn more about T1D. Mornings are spent in diabetes education sessions in important topics of thriving with diabetes ranging from pregnancy to drugs & alcohol to new technology and everything in between. Afternoons and evenings are spent enjoying nearby Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, participating in traditional camp activities, and enjoying group meals together. 

Medical Staff includes Jeannie Hickey, Justin Altschuler, and Sarah Altschuler.

Family Camp Flipped is for adults with T1D and their families, friends, and significant others.

Calling all adults with T1D, this one is for you! Have you dreamed of letting your family, friends, or significant other experience the magic of BMC just like you did as a child? Were you diagnosed as an adult and are wanting some support for you and your family or support network? Adults with T1D and those in their support networks are invited to join us in a supportive environment full of summer camp fun. We’ll provide diabetes education sessions for people with type I, for partners without type I, and for children who have parents with type I, all in an age-appropriate and positive manner. Even more importantly, you’ll build a community of other adults, families, and groups like yours all while having a blast doing traditional camp activities like archery, swimming, tie dye, campfires, talent shows, and more!

2022 Covid-19 Guidelines at DYF Programs (2023 Update Coming Soon): 

In respect for your family’s health and safety, all DYF staff and volunteers will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and we encourage eligible participants to do the same. Our COVID-19 policies for 2022 programs will be made with current information from the CDC, state and local health authorities, and under the leadership of our Healthcare Professional Advisory Board. Given the unique threat that COVID-19 poses to our community, we will likely require vaccination against COVID-19 for all participants age 18 and older. When full FDA approval is granted to younger groups (as opposed to emergency use authorization, EUA), we anticipate requiring vaccination for those younger age groups as well. Specific guidelines and requirements will be tailored to each program and released at least 30 days prior to the program start date. Should you have any concerns about these guidelines once they are released and you no longer feel comfortable attending a DYF program, we will provide you with a full refund minus the $50 non-refundable deposit and the corresponding processing fee.
