The Serengeti Campership Fund has been established at the Community Foundation of PEI to honour and pay tribute to the life of Janet von Weiler.

Janet was a kind, caring soul who was deeply committed to the health of her patients, particularly children with type 1 diabetes.  Janet was a mentor, teacher and loyal friend to those around her, work colleagues and dietetic interns. Janet was heavily involved as a dietitian at diabetes children’s camps in New Brunswick and PEI every year, for over 20 years.  Janet’s “camp” name, “Serengeti” was called many times by both child campers and camp staff members during these summer camps.

Donations to the Serengeti Campership Fund shall be used to support T1D Kids Camps in NB and PEI.  More specifically, funds will be used for the following:

1.Provide direct funding for campers that cannot afford to come to camp
2.To help keep the camper fees at a reasonable rate for all families
