ABOUT OUR CAMP
The Camp pour enfants diabétiques de l'Est du Québec (CEDEQ) is a non-profit organization that has been organized since 1975. We offer an exceptional camp experience for diabetic children ages 9 to 15.
As well, since 1989, families of diabetic children under the age of 9 have also been able to enjoy the social, recreational and educational experience of a camp weekend dedicated just to them and their families.
In a stimulating setting, CEDEQ invites young diabetics and their families to learn and deepen their knowledge about diabetes while taking advantage of support found only in the dynamics of a group.
A multidisciplinary team of health care professionals, composed of doctors, nurses and dieticians, supervise the control of diabetes by means of medication, teaching, food and physical exercise. This team is present, attentive and available 24 hours a day during the camp. Campers are taught diabetes self-management skills in a fun, interactive, safe environment.
The family camp experience allows parents of young diabetics to help tame the disease and to better adapt to the daily reality of diabetes by acquiring information and support.
In order to support our mission and activities, CEDEQ carries out a yearly fundraising campaign. This activity allows the organization to offer quality camps to the children and families and also to insure the camp experience remains affordable for all.
