    The program invites American Indian youth from tribes across Arizona to a one week intensive residential camp held at Whispering Pines, near Prescott, Arizona. The camp was established in 1991 to assist a growing number of Arizona's Indian youth who are at risk for or who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The program invites American Indian youth from tribes across Arizona to a one week intensive residential camp. At camp, kids learn healthy eating habits and ways to make exercise fun, consistent, and habitual. The best part? All camp activities take place in an American Indian context, deeply rooted in culture. This integration increases our effectiveness, makes health fun, and places its practice within a greater American Indian history.
