Family Camp

Camp Kudzu offers two Family Camp weekends each year in the fall and spring.

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.

Family camp is a great place for newly diagnosed, young children or families who need a boost in dealing with diabetes. Informative speakers and panel discussions give everyone a new perspective. You will also gain helpful tips and tricks to simplify life while helping your family member manage their diabetes. Overall these weekends provide a peek into camp life for parents and siblings.

You’re invited to join us for an amazing weekend of diabetes education, family bonding, networking, and fun!

Camp Kudzu Family camp was a great way for us to try out Camp Kudzu and it gave us the confidence to send her to overnight summer camp, knowing that she would be well-cared for by the endocrinologists, clinicians, and trained counselors.  Family Camp was also a great way for us to meet other families going through the same diagnosis.  Camp Kudzu is our bright spot and happy place!

Cost of Camp

Family Camp enrollment is $400, including a nonrefundable $50 deposit at the time of enrollment. The enrollment fee includes housing, with one family per cabin (you can also 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. Camp scholarships are available for families needing assistance. Camp fees should never get in the way of a family benefiting from a Camp Kudzu experience.
