The mission of DYF is to improve the quality of life for children, teens and families affected by diabetes. The organization provides education and recreation within a supportive community, encouraging personal growth, knowledge and independence.
DYF serves more than 1,500 individuals annually (children and teens with diabetes, siblings, parents and guardians) through our resident camps and recreation programs. Our most well-known program is our Bearskin Meadow Summer Camp. Bearskin Meadow Camp (BMC) is one of the oldest wilderness camps for youth living with diabetes in the country. In addition to BMC, we also offer Camp de los Niños, several weekend family education retreats, and numerous one day adventure programs throughout Northern California.
