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.


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. Registration opens Jan. 21, 2015. Sessions fill up fast, so register today. 


    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. Registration opens Jan 30, 2015. For more information, visit the web site or email Ashley Conant.
