Connect Winter Retreat

In person Winter Retreat is canceled for 2020 due to Covid-19

What is the Winter Retreat?

Every year young adults join us for a weekend experience that includes making great friends, fun activities, guest speakers, and open discussions. This is a valuable weekend that helps any young adult managing type 1 diabetes make some fabulous connections that help them cope with their everyday struggles. They will meet adult type 1’s who share their expertise is a variety of subject areas and how type 1 has impacted their life. They will learn valuable life lessons from these mentors and from each other.  Winter Retreat is a great time to get away from the stress of school, activities, friends and family.  They simply have a blast together.
