  • Type 1 Oregon — T1D Buddy Camp @ Tamarack

    To offer an active, inspiring, supportive, and creative community for children and teens with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in Oregon so they will in turn become leaders and mentors for their peers. Whether you’re treating a low blood sugar, counting carbs, or scaling the tallest Ponderosa in camp, life is easier (and better) when your buddy “has your back.” That’s why Type 1 Oregon’s T1D Buddy Camp invites kids and teens with T1D to bring buddies (siblings or friends) to share the fun and challenges. A bonus: buddies return to home, school, and sports and help grow the support community of kids with T1D.

  • Big Brother Big Sisters

    Kids need someone to stand in their corner, to be there when they face challenges, and to inspire them. Twenty years of data tell us how mentors ignite the potential and make a long term difference in the lives of kids and families. Kids with mentors do better in school, achieve higher levels of education, and have stronger relationships than those without. What family doesn’t benefit from have and extra support person! “Bigs” and “Littles” are matched based on common interests. Those can range from mountain bike riding, creating science projects, or watching football; each match decides what they enjoy doing together. The same studies tell us that whatever the activity, it’s the relationship with the positive, caring, adult role model who makes the difference.
