    T1D Buddy Camp is a program of Type 1 Oregon, a non-profit founded in 2018, whose mission is to offer an active, inspiring, supportive, and creative community for kids and teens with T1D [and their buddies] so they will in turn become leaders and mentors for their peers. Originally founded in 2014 as On Belay TYpe 1 Diabetes Camp, with Camp Tamarack's On Belay TY Foundation as our fiscal sponsor, we are excited by the opportunity to expand and offer new programs and support to the kids, young adults, and families of our T1D community. This summer, we invite T1D campers to bring more than one sibling or friend to Buddy Camp. In this way we hope to grow awareness and support for the T1D community.
