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 (7th-12th grade). 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.
Through fun, high-level programming, and engaging educational sessions, teens address college, uncomfortable topics, transiting to adulthood, and more!
Similar to our Summer Camp Program, campers are assigned to a cabin for the weekend that is supervised by counselors and a clinician to support their diabetes management.
It was just wonderful, and so nice to have issues that teens deal with discussed. It was great for our camper to see and further bond with her summer camp friends. Just an overall great weekend for her. She loved it.

The true cost of camp greatly exceeds what Camp Kudzu charges our families for camp programs. We are grateful for year-round donations that enable us to continue offering these subsidized fees.
The cost for Teen Retreat is $400 per camper, including a non-refundable $100 deposit.
Scholarships are available for families and campers in all our programs, including our summer camp programs. Scholarship applications are included in all online and paper application packets. Families are asked to pay the non-refundable deposit and submit that payment WITH camper and scholarship application paperwork. Returning campers are eligible for a scholarship each year.
