Since 1938 the DYF has provided programs and services to children, teens, families and community members affected by type-1 diabetes. Since that time, DYF has served over 50,000 people with information, knowledge, support, laughter and friendship that we like to refer to as the “Camp Magic”.
At all of our programs we strive to offer the usual fun experience such as swimming, surfing, skiing, arts & crafts, archery, sports and games, hiking, nature education and campfires. Perhaps more importantly, we also strive to ensure that our participants are gaining the skills necessary to manage their diabetes, but also stand them in good stead their entire lives.
Developing team-working, independence, and leadership skills are at the core of all our programs.
We operate several camps at our own facility, Bearskin Meadow Camp, located in the Kings Canyon National Park as well as some San Francisco Bay Area camps at Camp Arroyo in Livermore, Camp Campbell in Boulder Creek and Camp Jones Gulch in La Honda!
