National Teen Activity Day 2017

July 14, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Our aim is to encourage teens to engage in adventure activities and learn  good management of their diabetes while doing so. They will meet other teenagers with diabetes and most importantly they will have FUN.

  • The teen activity day will take place on Friday 14th July 2017, 10am – 4pm (not including travel time)
  • The day is open to all children with diabetes aged 10-16 years.
  • Events will be held in 4 centres nationwide and you choose which centre you would like to attend.
  • We plan to run buses from a number of localities to each of the centres where we have adequate participants.
  • A hot lunch and snacks will be provided throughout the day.
  • All centres will be fully supervised by trained instructors, volunteer leaders and a healthcare professional.
  • The fee per participant is only €20. All other costs will be covered by Diabetes Ireland.
