Kids with diabetes need to know how to take care of themselves—and that they are not alone. Camp Kudzu is a nonprofit organization that offers camps and events just for Georgia’s children and teens with diabetes Type 1 and their families. 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.
