Gives Back: Camp Kudzu & Spectrum

Gives Back to Support Camp Kudzu & Spectrum

The Georgia Spa Gives Back Program will support two organizations with a portion of Georgia Spa's proceeds from the month of July: Camp Kudzu and Spectrum Autism Support Group.

Camp Kudzu
Camp Kudzu is a nonprofit organization serving children, teens, and their families living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

The life-altering diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can be isolating and overwhelming - adding new and critical things to a child's daily routine. Day-to-day diabetes management requires the entire family, from checking blood sugar, counting carbohydrates, dosing insulin, and adjusting for physical activity. Camp Kudzu supports over 1,300 children, teens, and their families by providing camping experiences and educational opportunities at various camps in Georgia.

Spectrum Autism Support Group
Spectrum Autism Support Group was established in 1998 to provide support, education and resources for individuals and families impacted by autism.

Spectrum currently serves over 2000 families in Gwinnett County and the surrounding Metro Atlanta area and has become a well-known resource in the Autism community. Support groups, summer day camps, overnight camps, social skills groups, respite, community training, and family events are offered for all ages and abilities.
