Californians are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's San Jose office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease. We are here to help.

Type 2 Diabetes Youth Camp
June 17 to 21, 2013 – Hollister Youth Center in Hollister
July 15 to 19, 2013 – Mairfair Community Center in San Jose
August 5-9, 2013 – Seven Trees Community Center in San Jose
Considered uncommon a decade ago, type 2 diabetes among children and adolescents now represents one of the most rapidly growing forms of diabetes in the country. Currently over 215,000 persons under age 20 have diabetes. The purpose of our diabetes type 2 camps is to address the crucial need to educate high risk youth of the health dangers of diabetes, and its prevention. Camps will focus on underprivileged youth ages 10 to 15 who have been identified to be at risk of developing diabetes or have been diagnosed with diabetes. Camps will offer an educational and fun-filled environment which includes sessions on diabetes education, nutrition, obesity, physical activity, swimming, arts and crafts, and field trips. Youth will meet new friends, and learn along-side others with similar health issues. Healthy snacks and lunches will be provided daily as well as food preparation demonstrations.
Speakers and instructors at Camp include Certified Diabetes Educators, Nutritionists, Physical Education Instructors and other health professionals. Camp daily management staff will be bilingual, English and Spanish, and will receive training on diabetes from the American Diabetes Association prior to Camp.
