This rating was published 09/03/2019 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Established in 1958, Camp Nejeda was created for children with diabetes to just be children. Youth with diabetes are given the opportunity to live, if only for one or two weeks at a time, in a world where having diabetes is the norm and everyone here already understands! 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.
