Diabetes Camping and Educational Services (DCES) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is dedicated to helping children and their families to better understand and manage their Type 1 diabetes. DCES serves over 1,500 families annually from various backgrounds in the Southern California area in partnership with the region’s leading hospitals and educational institutions. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that Type 1 diabetes is the single-most costly chronic disease. The programs and events we provide through education, support groups, family retreats, and youth camping programs are designed to see each and every child develop life-saving skills and reach a new level of confidence and self-esteem. DCES is open to all children and families impacted by Type 1 diabetes, and offers numerous opportunities and training for volunteers, medical, and dietary professionals and students.
