Camp Conrad Chinnock

Camp Conrad Chinnock

Located in the San Bernardino Mountains of California, Camp Conrad Chinnock offers recreational, social, and educational opportunities for youth and families with diabetes. Campers are taught diabetes self-management skills in a fun, interactive, and safe environment. A primary focus of Diabetes Camping and Educational Services is providing residential camping experiences for youth with Type 1, insulin-dependent diabetes and their families at Camp Conrad Chinnock. Whether attending a youth or family camp, a comprehensive educational program provides training in formal and casual settings to teach children how to manage their medication, eat properly, and integrate physical activity into their lifestyle.


Program availability varies by age group, but typical activities include: 


  • age-appropriate arts and crafts activities,

  • time in the pool during the day and night,

  • canoeing,

  • casual and formal discussions about how diabetes impacts the lives of youth with diabetes,

  • archery and carnivals,

  • dances and campfires,

  • use of the 35-foot 'Activity Adventure Tower' with rock climbing, rappelling, the 'vertical playpen', and high-rope element,

  • mountain biking,

  • hikes, and

  • sleeping in the outdoors.


Structured times are designated for medical and dietary education programs as well as diabetes management, meals, and rest. 


Medical staff is on-site throughout the entire session. All meals and snacks are carefully planned and provided.


Transportation to and from camp is provided for all youth sessions free of charge.  The bus stop is in the Rancho Cucamonga / Fontana area of California near the intersection of Interstates 10 and 15.
