American Diabetes Association Camp

About the Camp

Camp AZDA, a program of the American Diabetes Association, is held at the Friendly Pines Camp facility, located in the tall pines of the Bradshaw Mountains, six miles outside Prescott. Our Teen Adventure Program (TAP) is nearby at the Bradshaw Pines facility. This residential camp provides a week of exciting activities. The facilities include cabin villages accommodating various age groups for boys and girls and a family-style dining hall. Older campers will also enjoy campfires, overnight campouts and a challenge course. Friendly Pines Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association.

The American Diabetes Association is proud to be the leading provider of Diabetes Camping Services in the United States. Our first priority is not perfecting blood sugar management but rather the safety of your child while they enjoy a traditional Camp experience. Camp AZDA medical staff provide campers the information and skills they need to live successfully with diabetes in any situation.

We also achieve your child's main goal in attending camp – having fun and meeting other kids with diabetes. Campers participate in traditional camp activities and gain independence, grow in confidence, discover new skills, and learn respect for each other and the great outdoors.
