We’re located in the Sequoia National Forest, at an elevation of 6,000 feet, 65 miles east of Fresno, CA. Bearskin Meadow was founded in 1938 with the philosophy that children and teens with diabetes can do anything other kids can do. We also know that diabetes is a condition that affects the whole family and so we focus on not just offering camp for kids, and teens, but parents & caregivers too! Our medical component is supervised by our year round Medical Director Dr. Mary Simon who uses her skills and experience as both a Diabetologist and diabetic to guide our education sessions . Over 60% of our passionate staff have diabetes and a deep understanding of the condition. We offer a number of different specialty programs including Kids Camps, Teen Camp, Family Camps and Leadership Training programs. Bearskin Meadow provides participants with a uniquely supportive community of peers and adults who truly understand the challenges of living with diabetes. The power of Bearskin, or the ‘Bearskin Magic’ as we have come to call it is best expressed in the words of one of our many families: “[Bearskin is the] best place in the world for diabetes stuff. Diabetes aside, it’s still the best place in the world.” We also offer over 20 year-round programs (see our website http://www.dyf.org/ for more details.)

Only 9 miles outside of Woodland Park, CO and a short distance from Colorado Springs, Camp Colorado is an idyllic summer camp setting. We encourage each camper to learn something new about diabetes management but never force education.

Here are the programs we offer:

Residential Camp, Boys & Girls, 8-17
“Rez” camp is what most people think of when summer camp is mentioned. Most campers stay in cabins on bunk beds and have the opportunity to do a number of camp activities. Archery, canoeing, riflery, swimming, crafts, camp Olympics, and capture the flag are familiar activities on the program agenda. Some new ones you might not have heard of before include the flight simulator (AKA “Vomitron”), the “blob” aqua jump, and the zipline.
COST: Members $540, Non-Members $580
(*Cost does include $50 non-refundable deposit due upon initial registration)

Wilderness Camp, Boys & Girls, 14-17
Wilderness camp is designed especially with teens in mind! Camper activities are created to promote leadership and team building with the intent of encouraging teens to become mentors. Common activities include rock climbing, rappelling, bouldering, mountain biking, white water rafting, ropes course, and more!
COST: Members $560, Non-Members $600
(*Cost does include $50 non-refundable deposit due upon initial registration)

Equestrian Camp, Girls only, 12-17
Does your daughter love horses? If so, then this is the program for her! Equestrian camp combines the fun of trail riding with the skill required for dressage, tack care, jumping, and horsemanship. CHA certified instructors work with campers throughout the week to ensure that your horse loving gal is learning something new. Campers are also able to do many of the activities available to “rez” campers!
