Fundraising Goal $3,000.00

My Message

Camp Nejeda is a home away from home for children, teens (and adults) with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Campers return to Nejeda summer after summer to re-connect with friends who share the common bond and understanding of what it's like to live with T1D.  

Do campers really BENEFIT from going to Nejeda? Absolutely! During thier time here, campers learn to balance managing their condition while having fun! Our campers learn through natural converstaions with friends, counselors, office and medical staff while boating, hiking, learning archery, creating art projects, testing blood sugar levels together and connecting in a way they may never have before. This type of learning helps campers realize they are not alone in living with their diabetes; helping them gain to confidence and empower them to become strong individuals who can inspire others. 

Camp Nejeda helps campers understand diabetes is something they have - it's not who they are. For many, Camp Nejeda is a home away from home and a second family of support and lifelong friendships.

"How will Camp Nejeda use the money I am donating?"

You're tax deductible donation will have an immense impact on our campers. Funds collected for the walkathon will enable the following: 

~ Subsidize 50% of the cost of camper fees for ALL campers

~ Provide more than $100,000 annually in Camperships (financial aid) to ensure that all children with T1D can attend camp, regardless of their ability to pay

~ Hire professional nursing and medical staff

~ Maintain the 72-acre campus, including 7-acre lake, archery course, zipline, arts & crafts, Helmsley Health Center, swimming pool and sports area

Camp Nejeda does not receive funds from state or federal agencies and has relied on the generosity of individuals, businesses, and organizations for financial support since 1958! 

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to Camp Nejeda. Together, friends and donors like you are making great things possible for youth with type 1 diabetes.

Camp Nejeda changed my life as a teeneger (and adult) with T1D. I have made llifelong friendships that have quite literally saved my life...along with a juicebox or two LOL. Thank you for helping me on my mission to give back to a place that gives so much to so many. <3
