Camp Kandu : Saturday, November 16th, 2024

Camp Kandu is a place where kids with diabetes ‘Kandu’ anything!  Children with diabetes are just like any other children, with the exception they have to pay particular attention to their medication, eating habits, and blood sugar.  Camp Kandu emphasizes their ability to live healthy lives while making friends with other children who share similar experiences. This is Mississippi's ONLY diabetes camp that is available to their children and families!
