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.

  • Family Camp Weekends

  • Teen Girls' Retreat
    Offered in the late fall for girls ages 13 to 17. Activities range from outdoor challenges to artistic projects to relaxing.
  • Winter Ski Event
    Weekend at Maggie Valley with ski instruction, skiing and good times for teens with diabetes.
