Registration for camp will open March 8th. 

The registration process is made up of three steps:

  • Payment of a $25 deposit to secure your interest and get you in our system;
  • Completing a detailed series of registration forms; and,
  • Paying the balance of your camp registration fee.

Step 1: Paying Your Deposit

Beginning the process and paying your deposit can be done below.  Once completed, you’ll have access to a homepage where you can fill out the online registration forms and select a payment option.

Step 2: Paying Your Registration Fee

We believe that every child living with type 1 diabetes should have the opportunity to experience camp, and be involved in a community of other kids and families living with type 1. We offer two payment amount options for families registering, with the opportunity for additional subsidy if requested. The plan you select is entirely up to you and should be based on your own comfort level.  We fundraise throughout the year with a variety of partners and sponsors to offer these subsidized camp rates. 

Option 1:
Lightly Subsidized Cost – $1500 for 1 week camps / $2500 for 2 week Challengers

This amount approaches our true cost of having a child at Camp Banting. If this option is feasible for your family, please select it during your checkout. We encourage families who are selecting this option to consider fundraising part or all of your camp fee. Should you select this option, we will be happy to provide you with supporting information and logos to help with your fundraising endeavors!

Option 2:
Moderately Subsidized Cost – $1050 for 1 week camps / $2000 for 2 week Challengers
This cost is available at checkout as a partially subsidized rate. No application is needed to select this option, and it is geared toward families who may more comfortably afford this amount.

We have payment plans available for these first two options, and will work with you to find out what is best for your financial situation.

Option 3:
Campership Subsidy Application

We recognize that all families and finances are different. If you are unable to afford either option, we offer further financial subsidies based on need, by application. After paying the deposit below, you will be able to fill out a financial assistance application

Step 3: Completing Your Camp Forms

Before your submit your enrollment to camp, there is an online camp form that we ask you to fill out about your child.  We take up medical, behavioural, dietetic, and family information. We use this information to best support your child while they are in our care.
