The nights will be filled with campfire, night hikes and reconnecting with your favorite camp memories. Sleep under the stars, tie-dye a few t-shirts and share stories with fellow Alumni! Relive the magic.

Our Alumni boasts over 75 years of people camping and living well with diabetes – we have MUCH to celebrate. Can’t wait to see you at camp!

2010 Family Camp Documentary

 

Bearskin Meadow Camp, BMC, is one of the oldest and largest wilderness resident camps for children, teens and families affected by diabetes. Located in the Sequoia National Forest, BMC is 65 miles east of Fresno, California at an elevation of 5800 feet. Campers and families come to camp from all over California, the United States, and the world.

But until now, Bearskin has never had a simple, effective way to communicate the essence of what happens at one of its family camps, which are attended by children and their parents. So Kikim Media was asked to produce a video that introduced Bearskin Meadow to parents who were considering attending the camp with their children, and told the story of the transformative impact it can have.

Celebrating its 73rd season of camp, BMC was founded with the philosophy that children and teens with diabetes can do anything other kids can do, including experience summer camp adventures. Diabetes is a condition that affects the whole family, including siblings and parents, too. From June to August each summer, Bearskin Meadow offers a number of different specialty programs to choose from including: kids camp; teen camp; family camps; and leaders-in-training programs. Bearskin Meadow gives campers and parents a uniquely supportive community of peers and adults who truly understand the day to day challenges of living with diabetes. Bearskin Meadow is run by the Diabetes Youth Families.
