Joshua Tree Camping
December 16 @ 4:00 pm - December 18 @ 1:00 pm PSTFree
T1Ds in the Wild is an immersive outdoor experience for adults living with T1D to help remove the barriers we face in benefiting from the outdoors through:
- managing T1D in the outdoors
- finding in-person community support
- building mental resilience by facing the unknown
- de-stressing in nature
Studies have shown that camping can increase happiness and mindfulness and decrease stress, yet, because of the many obstacles in managing blood sugars, people with T1D are half as likely to go camping regularly as the rest of the population.
Teaching people with T1D how to camp safely will not only bridge the gap in accessing the outdoors, but will help people with T1D lead fuller, happier, and healthier lives.
