Camp Kudzu – Camp Kudzu offers summer camps, family weekends, teen retreats, adventure trips and more. The focus is on fun, but the lessons learned 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 and often display greater emotional resilience in coping with their diabetes. Camp is a child-friendly atmosphere where healthy habits are reflected by adult role models living with diabetes as well. Diabetes camp also offers the same benefits of any other residential camp-games, new friends, and a lot of fun!
