Located in the San Bernardino Mountains of California, Camp Conrad-Chinnock offers recreational, social, and educational opportunities for youth and families with diabetes. Campers are taught diabetes self-management skills in a fun, interactive, and safe environment.
A primary focus of Diabetes Camping and Educational Services is providing residential camping experiences for youth with Type 1, insulin-dependent diabetes and their families at Camp Conrad-Chinnock. Whether attending a youth or family camp, a comprehensive educational program provides training in formal and casual settings to teach children how to manage their medication, eat properly, and integrate physical activity into their lifestyle.
Camp Conrad-Chinnock is owned and operated by Diabetes Camping and Educational Services, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The mission of DCES is committed to providing a safe, educational, and healthy camping experience to all children and families. Our services and facilities will be shared with health-based associations, schools, and community organizations looking to promote self-esteem, spiritual awareness, and moral character within children, including those living with chronic illness, physical disability, or economic hardship.
