    Upcoming Camp Kudzu Inc. Programs

    Camp Kudzu Spring Family Camp II

    • Audience: Teen
    • Program Type: Overnight Camp
    • Location: Rutledge, GA US

    Being a teenager can be complicated, and type 1 diabetes doesn’t make it any easier. Camp Kudzu’s Teen Retreat was created to foster independence and community among our older campers (ages 13-18). During this session, we focus on hard-hitting topics related to being a teen living with type 1 diabetes. This weekend provides time for campers to strengthen relationships made during summer camp with a smaller group of peers while exploring the diabetes-related challenges that they likely face every day.

    Postponed due to COVID-19. Come Hang 10! At Tybee Island with the instructors of Tybee Surf Lessons as we get a chance to catch a wave with kids like you! Learn how to surf with a 15-20-minute ground lesson and the remainder of the time in the water on a surfboard. Snack and water included. Families are encouraged to make a day out of this opportunity and stay at the beach before or after their session time.

    • Program Type: Overnight Camp
    • Location: Rutledge, GA US

    Diabetes affects the whole family, and our Family Camps are for the whole family. No child or infant is too young, and no teen is too old. We believe it is empowering when families come together to learn more about diabetes and share their common experiences in a supportive setting. Each camp session takes place at Camp Twin Lakes, in Rutledge, Georgia, about 55 miles east of downtown Atlanta. It starts in the early evening (6:30 p.m.) on Friday and concludes before lunch on Sunday. The weekend includes workshops on diabetes and activities for everyone, including “drop-ins,” where your family can choose what you want to do.
