Join TeamWILD at CampWILD in 2013!
June 19 – 23, 2013 in Boulder, CO
CampWILD Training Camp transforms your life through real-time diabetes education, sports skills clinics, workouts with your camp mates and coaches, really delicious and healthy meals, and a lot of Teamy Goodness.
TeamWILD Training Camp is a life changing experience where you learn about diabetes and exercise and share your experiences with other people with diabetes who care about their health and wellness.
IMPORTANT: You do NOT have to consider yourself an athlete to come to CampWILD. TeamWILD works with everyone from the beginning exerciser to the already-accomplished athlete who is looking to improve both their athletic performance and their diabetes control.
There are three tracks to choose from: Cycling, Triathlon or Run/Walk.
WHO IS CAMP FOR? CampWILD is for adults, ages 18 and over, who have type 2 or type 1 diabetes. There are also a limited number of camp seats available to type 3′s (supporters) who would like to attend camp alongside their friend or family member who has type 1 or type 2.
Upon registration, you will select an athletic track: cycling, triathlon or run/walk, to follow while at camp. All campers attend meals, and diabetes and nutrition training as one large group. Exercise sessions are sport-specific and will have levels to accommodate all fitness and skill levels.
WHAT HAPPENS AT CAMP? At CampWILD, you have a full schedule of educational workshops, athletic training, and delicious meals. Here is a sample schedule to get a feel for how your time at camp is filled.
Check out this live video chat Camp Director Mari recently had with Mara, former Camper now TeamWILD staff member and Brenda, camper. They tell it like it is.

TESTIMONIALS from CampWILD2012!
|“Life altering, I have a new perspective on my life and my diabetes.“|
|“I cannot stop telling everyone who asks how much I learned at CampWILD. This was the best experience I have had in almost 30 years with diabetes. Thank you!“ — Type 1 diabetes, 29 years|
|“Fun group, fun energy, great food, great teaching!“|
|“If you’re interested in learning more about your diabetes than you have in a long time, come to CampWILD with me next year. I learned how to manage my blood sugars during and after extreme exercise instead of dealing with “the fallout” as I did for so long. Seeing so many people wearing pumps and CGMs was amazing, also, and never having to be embarrassed about my pump or meter beeping allowed me to not feel singled out for the first time in my life. Meeting other people who live with diabetes everyday and want to be healthy and in control of their lives was so inspiring!“|
|“This was the most inspirational and educational camp or seminar I have ever participated in!“ — Type 2 diabetes, 5 years|
|“The people I met and the things I learned have change me in ways that are hard to describe. The staff are all amazing! It was really cool to meet some of them in person after seeing them on video. I tell everyone I meet about campWILD!“ — Type 1 diabetes, 25+ years|
|“Great staff. Great learning experience! Loved being around other people like me!“|
Come and GO WILD with us in 2013!
