Camp Kudzu                                     

Camp Kudzu is Georgia’s single largest resource, outside hospitals and clinics, for diabetes self-management education. It’s a Georgia-based nonprofit. Camp Kudzu offers summer camps, family weekends, teen retreats, adventure trips and more. The focus is on fun, but the lessons learned are critical to long-term health. Children who have access to quality diabetes management education at a young age can reduce their risk of diabetes-related complications and often display greater emotional resilience in coping with their diabetes. Camp is a child-friendly atmosphere where healthy habits are reflected by adult role models living with diabetes as well. Diabetes camp also offers the same benefits of any other residential camp-games, new friends, and a lot of fun! 

Members of the Gainesville LIONS club volunteer their time and "trucks" each year to transport 300 plus campers' and counselors' luggage to and from White County Middle School to summer camp. It was a great day of service work and fellowship by the LIONS.
