Join Us at Camp Kudzu!

We have everything you need, including access to endocrinologists and other clinical staff, and we have an educational emphasis woven into all our activities so you’ll learn how to better manage your condition. Most of all, however, we have the full camp experience!

We have scholarships available, and our mission is to make sure that nobody gets turned away from camp due to a lack of ability to pay. If you have T1D, we have a place for you. A great place to check us out this year is Session Four, located at Camp Barney Medintz in Cleveland, Georgia and taking place August 2-8, 2020.

Camp Kudzu is my favorite week of the year. It’s one of the only times where I feel more normal, because everyone else there also has type one [diabetes].
