 2021 Gala (In-Person and Virtual)

An Evening 'Round the Campfire Gala

Gather with us on Saturday, October 16, 2021 for our 13th Annual Evening 'Round the Campfire Hybrid Gala, as we raise critical funds to support the operation of Camp Conrad Chinnock.

Our Gala is truly a ‘family and friends affair’! Attendees will be treated to an evening filled with songs, skits performed by the kids, entertainment, silent auctions, raffles and more while enjoying a wonderful sit-down dinner. In the event that you can’t make it in-person enjoy our live stream from the comfort of your own home.

Camp Conrad Chinnock has been a safe haven for thousands of children living with diabetes. Your generous support will help us to continue the work of educating children and their families in how to better manage Type 1 diabetes and learn to cope with the challenges of living with it every day.

If you are willing to demonstrate your support by selling raffle tickets, securing silent auction items, sponsor, or attending, we ask you email info@diabetescamping.org


Family & Youth Events


Diabetes Camping and Educational Services hosts engaging activities in many partnerships with JDRF, ADA and the PADRE Foundation for children, teens and families. The purpose of these support programs that we host is to enable children to have a sense of normalcy and to enable them to be side by side with their peers, who do the same things that any child with diabetes must do; test their blood sugar, take shots, measure food, etc.. Accepting their disease and establishing a routine is mandatory to prevent the potential complications a child living with diabetes may face.

S'mores Roast: CIT Leadership Event 

Saturday, May 1, 2021


Hot dogs and marshmallows on a stick, held over the fire, thats the trick! We are inviting our first and second year Counselor-in-Training (CIT's) to a special leadership building in Huntington Beach, CA. This event is for those who are applying to become a CIT in Summer 2021. The evening will feature small group activities, discussions, and a chance to connect with our current and future leaders of Camp Conrad Chinnock. 

The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program is a leadership program for teens 17-19 years of age who want to learn about Camp Conrad Chinnock's approach to working with children living with Type 1 diabetes. This program requires an application, reference, and interview with one of our directors. 

If you are interested in furthering your involvement at Camp, please sign up for this opportunity! ​
