Lake O’Hara Hiking Series | British Columbia

July 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - July 19, 2015 @ 4:00 pm UTC+0

WHAT: Type 1 Backpacking Trek
Lake O’Hara, Yoho National Park, British Columbia
WHEN: July 15 – July 19, 2015
WHO: Adults (19+) with Type 1 diabetes

Looking to take your diabetes on an adventure. Mark your calendars! CIM is heading back into the mountains and we’d love to have you along for the hike!

This program is open to adults, 19+, with Type 1 diabetes. Moderate fitness and previous hiking experience is necessary, although if this is your first backpacking experience – no worries! We’d love to teach you more! This trip will involve base camping at Lake O’Hara campground and day hiking to explore the Lake O’Hara region. Lake O’Hara is a protected area of the Rockies. As such, a very limited number of permits are available each day to hikers and campers. CIM has been lucky enough to receive a very small number of permits. This trip will be open to maximum of 6 hikers. Don’t delay in registering! (Did you know CIM has been to Lake O’Hara before? Check out our 2010 hiking series photos!)

What’s Included
– Hostel Accommodation (Wednesday Evening)
– Camping Permits (Thursday through Sunday)
– National Parks Pass/Permits
– All Meals and Snacks (Thursday Breakfast through Sunday Lunch)
– Group Camping Gear (Tents, Stoves, Cooking Gear, Maps, etc.)
– Certified Wilderness Guides
– Experiential Diabetes Education Programming
– Emergency Supplies + Gear (diabetes, first aid, and otherwise!)

What’s Not Included
– Transportation to and from Lake O’Hara Parking Lot (but we can help with carpooling!)
– Personal Camping Gear (Sleeping bags, Sleeping Pads, Day Packs, etc – Although we can help with any of this, if needed!)
– Personal diabetes supplies


CIM is trialing a new Tiered Registration System. We never want finances to stop someone from participating in our programs. At CIM, we work hard to fundraise to cover our operating costs, allowing us to subsidize the cost of CIM programming to our participants. In an attempt to be totally transparent and to help the community understand our dollars and cents, our Tiered Registration System will allow you to choose the registration price that works best for you, including subsidized and fundraising options. No matter which path you choose to take to pay for your participation, your experience will be the same (and your choice will remain confidential!)

**A non-refundable deposit of $100 due at the time of registration

**Still not able to swing it, but interested in joining us? Send an email to info@connectedinmotion.ca with ‘Lake O’Hara’ in the subject line and we’ll see what magic we can work!
