    Spring Family Camp

    • Dates: April 21, 2017 to April 23, 2017
    • Audience: Families of Youth & Teen
    • Program Type: Overnight Camp

    Diabetes affects the whole family, and Camp Kudzu Young sister at Goldpanning Family Camps are for the whole family.  No child or infant is too young and no teen is too old.  It is empowering to see families come together to learn more about diabetes and share their common experiences in a supportive setting.  The weekend includes workshops on diabetes and activities for everyone, including walk ins, where you choose what you want to do. Informative speakers and panel discussions give everyone a new perspective.  Carb counts for all menu items, meals and snacks, simplify life.  Family camp is a great introduction for newly diagnosed or young children, or families who need a boost in dealing with diabetes.  Family camp weekends also provide a peak into camp life for parents and siblings.  It starts in the early evening (6:30 pm) on Friday and concludes before lunch on Sunday.
