There is nothing quite as life-giving as meeting someone who truly understands the everyday challenges of diabetes. This common ground facilitates new friendships and a sense of belonging. From theme days to group competitions, we have the fun covered for the week!
Our days are filled with activities that campers can choose from and pockets of free time to relax and take it all in. True to summer camp tradition, we will wrap up the evenings gathered around the campfire under the stars.
Campers who attend our camp will build relationships, experience independence, and gain freedom to take risks while managing diabetes in a safe environment. We have carefully selected quality staff members, including those with camp leadership experience, personal connections to Type 1 diabetes, professional expertise in the medical field, and the motivation to create a week full of adventures for your child.
Our hope is that your child will leave Camp Kinneloa connected to a unique community of peers and adults. We want campers to feel empowered to manage diabetes in a healthy way back at home. Katie Kelly has been living with Type 1 diabetes for over 20 years.
If one of our sessions does not reach our minimum enrollment, we hold the right to cancel that session at a full refund. We will let you know fourteen days in advance of any cancellations.
We do not foresee this happening because we have sold out every session over the years. At your request, we will convert your unused Camp registration fees into a tax-deductible donation to San Diego Circus Center, a c 3 non-profit, to be used for our special needs programs. By the end of our scheduled camp times, our instructors have worked a full, long day, and it is time for them to clock out and go home.
If your child has special needs we would love to have them share in all the awesomeness that is circus. Please contact us prior to enrolling so that we can ensure we can provide the best experience for all campers. Topics include engineering, robotics and programming. Students: Parent Resources Menu.
