Teen Activity Day 2023

Diabetes Ireland’s National Teen Activity Day is back!

This year, for teenagers living with diabetes aged between 12-16 years, we have booked 4 Activity Centres for a day of fun and adventure on Friday 7 July 2023.


The aim of the day is to bring together young teenagers living with diabetes to have a fun day and to meet other teens with diabetes. Over the years, our teens have made lifelong friends and we really hope you will join us on the day and become part of our growing Teen Type 1 Diabetes community.

The day will run from about 10 am to 4 pm at each centre. During the day, participants will undertake water-based and land-based activities. 


We will run buses from a number of locations to each of the activity centres where we have adequate numbers. Further information on the bus routes will be made available nearer the time. The buses will depart each location at 8-8.30 am and return around 6-6.30 pm in the evening.


Healthcare professional support will be available at each centre throughout the day. A hot lunch and snacks will be provided throughout the day.
