Camp Nejeda Foundation for Children with Diabetes
About Camp Nejeda
Camp Nejeda has been in continuous operation since 1958 and at our present location since 1960. We are funded by the Camp Nejeda Foundation, Inc, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. At Camp Nejeda youth with diabetes are given the opportunity to live, if only for one or two weeks, in a world where having diabetes is the norm and where there is no need to explain blood sugar testing, finger pricks, insulin injections, ketones, ‘lows’ (insulin reactions), boluses or ‘carb’ counting because everyone here already understands. At Camp Nejeda children with diabetes are free to be just children. This normalizing of their condition combines with both formal and informal educational moments to promote good diabetes management and healthy, active living. The addition of our Family Camps and other Extended Programs offered throughout the year provides the empowering fellowship and educational opportunities for individuals with type 1 diabetes of all ages and for their families.
