Adventures: Teen Hiking Trip – British Columbia

July 31 - August 3

WHAT: Teen Hiking Trip
WHERE: Garibaldi Lakes, British Columbia
WHEN: July 31-Aug 3, 2018
WHO: Teens aged 15-17 with Type 1

Whether it’s your first or one-hundredth trip, we want to hike with you.

2018 brings CIM back for our third year at Garibaldi Lakes. Our Teen Hiking Trip to Garibaldi Lake will pair youth with Type 1 diabetes with CIM mentors to explore the backcountry together, and learn what this whole ‘adult care’ thing is all about. While exploring the trails and mountains of Garibaldi Provincial Park, we will discuss the highs and lows of transitioning to adulthood with T1 diabetes.

We will meet at the Rubble Creek Parking Lot on Tuesday morning and travel together up to Garibaldi Lakes. Sorry, parents – we’re leaving you behind, but we’ll see you on Friday! We will base our trip out of the Garibaldi Lake Campground, venturing out on day trips to explore Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk.

The Teen Hiking Trips will cater to a wide range of skill levels and experience from both youth and mentors but will be very limited in space. We will be accepting 8 teen participants for this year’s trip. The rest of our backpackers will be made up of T1 mentors, an HCP, and guides both with Type 1 diabetes and without.

Don’t believe us? Just watch!
