Spring Family Camp – April 21-23, 2017 (Registration OPEN)
Each year we offer two Family Camp weekends, one in the fall and the other in the spring. The location is Camp Twin Lakes, in Rutledge, Georgia, about 55 miles east of downtown Atlanta. Join us for an amazing weekend of diabetes education, family bonding, networking, and fun!
Diabetes affects the whole family, and Camp Kudzu’s Family Camps are for the whole family. No child or infant is too young and no teen is too old. It’s 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 “drop 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 peek into camp life for parents and siblings. It starts in the early evening (6:30 pm) on Friday and concludes before lunch on Sunday.
“The experience for the parents at family camp is profound. We transcended to a whole new level of understanding – not on the medical side really, but we absorbed so much from the shared experiences of others. There were several newly diagnosed families. They are so strong. I know what they are going through, and I know how hard their lives must be at this moment. We have been diagnosed 3+ years, and I cried when talking this weekend!! We are a family of easy criers though.”
The Family Camp fee ($400) includes housing, with one family per cabin (however, you can request to share a cabin with friends), as well as all food, activities and program expenses for the entire family. Family Camp is limited to immediate family members living in the camper’s home. Extended family members are welcome at an additional cost of $125/person. Need-based scholarships are available.

Teen Winter Retreat
This year we are staying two nights and skiing two days in North Carolina. We’ll start out from the Camp Kudzu office at 3:00 pm on Friday, January 20 and will return late in the evening on Sunday, January 22. Campers, staff and volunteers will take a chartered bus to the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center in Lake Junaluska, NC and will ski nearby (approximately 11 miles away) at the beautiful Cataloochee Ski Area in Maggie Valley, NC.
The Teen Ski Weekend is one of the best ways to reunite with teen camp friends, make new friends and enjoy skiing the slopes! Fun activities await you on and OFF the slopes!
