The National Kidney Foundation serving Southern California and Southern Nevada offers TEEN CAMP for peritoneal, post transplant, and general nephrology patients ages 13-21. Camp takes place in Mammoth, CA in collaboration with The North Valley YMCA. Our target population is children suffering from chronic kidney disease that come from low income backgrounds. They not only suffer from various forms of kidney disease, but they also struggle to fulfill their daily needs. Our goal is not only to sponsor an unforgettable camp experience for the campers but to educate these Teens as they are soon approaching Adulthood. We incorporated an additional educational program for TEENS called Transitioning from Teens to Adults. Our goal is that by us educating them about proper nutrition, their medication, kidney function, etc. They can transition into responsible adult patients.
