Since 1974, we have sponsored camping programs in California for children and families with diabetes. These camps provide an opportunity for children and young adults with diabetes to go to camp, meet others in their age group similarly with diabetes and gain a better understanding of diabetes. The total experience can help campers develop more confidence in their ability to effectively control their diabetes while enjoying traditional camping experiences. We offer youth resident, teen resident, day, and family camps.
