We've Got Diabetes Covered

Camp Kudzu is a non-profit organization providing education, recreation and peer-networking programs for Georgia's children with Type 1 diabetes.

Camp KudzuCamp Kudzu's mission is to educate, empower and inspire children living with diabetes. The camp offers summer sessions, family weekends and teen retreats. The focus is on fun, but the lessons learned regarding diabetes self-management skills are critical to long-term health.

Children who have access to quality diabetes management education at a young age can reduce their risk of diabetes-related complications. Camp provides vital education in a setting that gives each child the best chance of practicing lessons learned.

 The 2015 Camp Kudzu Benefit Luncheon will be held on November 10, 2015 at the Cherokee Town Club in Buckhead. This annual event gathers 350 of Atlanta's most influential philanthropists and supporters of the diabetes community.

Camp Kudzu programs include:

  • Summer Camp
    Camp Kudzu is a world where having diabetes is the norm—where there is no need to explain blood sugar testing, finger pricks, insulin injections, ketones, lows, boluses or carb counting, because everyone already understands.

  • Family Camp
    Family camp is a great way for younger children and newly diagnosed kids and their families to learn more about diabetes management and receive support from other families, clinicians and experienced diabetes staff while sharing some of the fun experiences of camp with the whole family. 

    Fall Family Camp will be October 23-25, 2015. Registration is open.

  • Winter Ski Event
    A weekend at Maggie Valley with ski instruction, skiing and good times for teens with diabetes.
