    Camp provides a fun and unique experience, inviting kids and their families to become part of a community where they can grow together. For nearly 70 years, we’ve run camps across the country serving over 100,000 children and their families. Camp is a lifeline for both children living with diabetes and those at high risk for developing type 2. We know first-hand how children respond to learning in a safe and fun environment. We believe every child should have the life-changing experience of summer camp.

    Upcoming American Diabetes Association - Arizona Programs

    Camp AZDA

    • Dates: June 02, 2018 to June 09, 2018

    This residential camp provides a week of activities such as horseback riding, fishing, water sports, high ropes course, climbing wall, arts and crafts, and much more. Older campers will also enjoy overnight campouts and a challenge course.  Our Teen Adventure Program (TAP) is nearby at the Bradshaw Pines facility.  We also achieve your child's main goal in attending camp – having fun and meeting other kids with diabetes. Campers participate in traditional camp activities and gain independence, grow in confidence, discover new skills, and learn respect for each other and the great outdoors.

    Camp 180°

    • Dates: July 08, 2018 to July 14, 2018
    • Audience: Youth
    • Program Type: Overnight Camp

    The main goal of the program at the American Diabetes Association's Camp 180° is to allow the campers the ability to feel at ease and "accepted" in a community where having diabetes is the rule, not the exception. The campers learn to understand diabetes and the process of self-management, under skilled and continuous medical supervision. It is the hope of the staff that these children go home feeling more self-confident, self-reliant and having gained the knowledge they need to live successful, full lives with diabetes. We want them to be able to say, "I went to camp and had fun!" Many of these children come to camp not knowing any other people with diabetes, especially other kids like themselves. There are friendships made, which quite frankly, last a lifetime!
