Camp Sweet Life, sponsored by Children’s Hospital of Georgia, is an overnight summer camp for patients who have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes or insulin dependent Diabetes.

The goal of the camp is to provide children and adolescents with diabetes the opportunity to participate in normal childhood activities in a summer camp setting.  It also provides parents a break from caring for a child with chronic illness.  They can be assured their child is cared for and having fun in a safe environment.

At Camp Sweet Life, the main focus is taken off the child’s medical needs, and placed instead on their psychosocial and developmental needs.  Campers are offered the excitement and fun of traditional summer camp activities.  They are also offered the unique advantage of being in an environment cared for by experienced staff that are responsive to their unique medical needs.  Campers will enjoy a weekend packed full of adventure alongside other children with diabetes at Camp Lakeside in Lincoln County.

Camp Sweet Life is an opportunity for children to create memories that will last a lifetime. 
Most importantly, it is a time for kids to just be kids! For more information, contact Stephanie Grayson, director for Camp Sweet Life via email or by calling 706-721-0749.
