Diabetes Exercise Strategies Together In Network with You (D.E.S.T.I.N.Y) will bring people with Diabetes together to learn about strategies from others and how to maximize their glucose control through the highest level of sports and life activities. We will offer different programs for all age groups.
Our vision is to work with children, young adults and ultimately, mature adults with diabetes and set up extreme environment programs with activities focused to fit the age group. We bring clinical experts in exercise and activity as well as athletes with Diabetes to each program. Our athletes are there as role models, sharing their successful strategies, challenges and inspirations with our participants at camp. We all work together to empower each participant with an attitude that a “yes we can do anything we want with Diabetes”!
Here are some comments from parents of past campers:
“Thanks to everyone who takes their time to makes these camps awesome. This was a first for my daughter and she had a blast and wants to be a counselor next year!!!! So exciting!!!!”
“Thank you for a wonderful experience at camp. She stretched herself and tried activities like the zip line and rock climbing for the first time. She is excited for next year.”
“Thank you for such a wonderful experience for my daughter. This was her first time at your camp and she hasn’t stopped talking about it since we picked her up this morning.”
“Our son had another great year. Thank you Ron DeNunzio for all you do to keep this going and thank you to everyone else who takes time from their schedules to help out.”
“thank you for our son’s first camp experience – it was a 10 out of 10! he loved the food (he went on and on about the food), the kids, the activities, the counselors, the cabins, everything! for me, i loved the pics posted all weekend so we could be the fly on the wall, and i loved seeing his smiling face when i picked him up today. see you all next year!”
“Kudos to the founders of the Extreme Adventure Camp and everyone who makes it such a success. What an incredible experience for all the children, not to mention how rewarding it was for our family to volunteer.”
