We are excited to announce the new Kids Camp at TypeOneNation Summit! Children’s breakout sessions will be both educational and FUN!

Details on the Omnipod Demo Design Contest and the educational sessions are listed below. Kids Camp is available for T1D’s and their siblings! Groups will be organized by age: ages 4-7 and ages 8-12.
