It’s Fall Y’all!
I am so thrilled for a bit of a cool down here in the south, but I am more excited for all the things coming up this fall here for Camp Kudzu South GA!
October 12 we are inviting South GA families to Poppel Farms in Odem, GA for a FREE Family Day on us. An opportunity to hang out with new and old friends and welcome the fall season with open arms. If you are interested, please make sure to RSVP so we can have an accurate idea of the families who will be joining us. Poppel Farms is a working farm and the day will include entrance for your entire family to the 10-acre corn maze, pumpkin patch, petting zoo, hayride, and many more activities! There are food vendors onsite so plan to spend the day with us!
For the month of December, we are selling 50 discounted tickets to the NAIA Senior Football Classic here in Savannah. The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) will host the inaugural NAIA Senior Football Classic December 14, 2019, at Memorial Stadium and will bring some of the NAIA’s best football players for an all-star game showdown in the low country. Join us as we cheer on our favorite collegiate players and have the chance for some on and off the field fun! Stay tuned for more details on the morning kids clinic, pregame tailgate and players welcome.
In other great news, Camp Kudzu South GA is teaming up with the Cynthia Willet Children’s Hospital of Savannah to provide hospitality items and activities families admitted due to their diabetes. Being admitted is not fun for anyone, but we figured if we can help fill some of the time in the hospital with a smile or activity, we wouldn’t miss that opportunity for the world! Forget your toothbrush? Not a problem well get you one. Need a pick me up activity? The Child Life Specialist will help provide you one on our behalf!
I have also been approved as an official Memorial Health volunteer for the peds floor and will be making more in person visits to families who have been admitted. This past week I spent my time coloring and painting the nails of a 17-year-old friend I met who was admitted due to her diabetes. I would be honored to pop in if I can during your hospital stay to hang out and bring some fun to your day. We here at Camp Kudzu prefer your time is spent outside of the hospital doing great things, but we also understand the realities of your type 1 diabetes journey. We are here to support you and your family wherever you are.
I look forward to the fall here in South GA and I am excited to see all of you in the next few months. Please make sure to follow our local Facebook group page for more news!
