Independence Weekend
2014-03-07 to 2014-03-09

Audience: Young Adult
Program Type: Overnight Camp
ACA Accredited

Camp Nejeda has always been known as a great  summer camp for children for diabetes.  During our summer programs we give youth the opportunity to live for one or two weeks in a world where having diabetes is the norm.

After leaving high school (and possibly again after college) those young adults do not always have the support system of their parents or caregivers right there with them.  And this is in addition to the challenges and changes that come with leaving their familiar and comfortable environments!

This program is designed to provide a forum of “safe independence” where young adults are given the opportunity to talk with other young adults—some who are in the same situation and some who have already gone through it–about this exciting (and sometimes scary) time of life.

Are you an alum of Camp Nejeda with type 1 diabetes and looking for a venue where you can speak with other adults with type 1 diabetes and catch up with all of the latest diabetes information and technology?  While there are usually many events and programs for children with diabetes, this education weekend is for adults with type 1 AND we'll have some fun at camp while we're at it!

This program will run from lunchtime on Saturday, April 5 through lunchtime on Sunday, April 6.  The cost is ONLY $55 and all participants will stay on the second (residential) floor of the Helmsley Health Center.

Camp Nejeda Session 1
2014-06-29 to 2014-07-05

Audience: Youth & Teen
Program Type: Overnight Camp
ACA Accredited

Camp Nejeda offers all the activities you would expect to find at any sleep-away camp, but the Camp Nejeda experience also provides formal and informal educational opportunities for campers to learn how to better manage their diabetes, make healthy food choices, and maintain a good attitude.

Each cabin houses eight campers, two Senior Counselors and two Junior Counselors. Each session is attended by approximately 40 girls and 40 boys. Our campers come primarily from NJ, NY and PA, but we welcome campers from everywhere. Most of our counselors are alumni of Camp Nejeda and have diabetes themselves.

The camp day has activity periods where the camper's can pick their own activity and some periods where things are done in cabin groups. The camp has a seven-acre lake, archery range, basketball, tetherball and volleyball courts, sports fields, low-ropes course, indoor gym, arts & crafts center, playground, swimming pool, quiet games area, and hiking and biking trails. The pool is used every day. Meals are served to each cabin's table. Evening activities include games, dances, campfires, pool parties, and more.

Camp Nejeda is a summer camp for kids with diabetes, not a diabetes boot camp. Each camper attends programs on nutrition and diabetes management during their stay, but the most valuable educational opportunities come in the form of teachable moments which occur when the campers interact with our Health Center Staff and their Counselors during insulin administration and throughout the day. Our Camp Director, Jim Daschbach, has been with Camp Nejeda since 1990.
