The Hugo's YLIN Family Retreat is offered for families who have a child with diabetes. This weekend retreat includes parents, the child (5 years of age or older) and his/her siblings (5 years of age or older). This retreat is meant to provide an opportunity for families to share their perspectives with each other and to hear from other parents, children and siblings who have walked the same paths. There will be time allocated for:
Parents to share with parents
Children to share with children
Parents and children to share together
The hope is the families will openly discuss some of the more difficult emotional issues they face. We've planned a multitude of surprises to provide entertainment and a sense of mystery to make this a fun, rejuvenating weekend.
The camp is Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6 at Camp Pinelow on the shores of Deer Lake.
Registration is $100 per family and is due by April 1, 2007.
