Our Story

South Carolina Youth Diabetes Association

The South Carolina Youth Diabetes Association (SCYDA) was created by a group of like-minded individuals who saw the need for additional medically driven camping opportunities in South Carolina for children with diabetes. The idea was borne out of their desire to improve the lives of the youth of South Carolina who are living, and dealing with, the challenges of Type 1 diabetes. To achieve this goal they have developed and maintain diabetes camps, college support, enhanced school support for diabetes management, and sponsor fund-raising events.  



South Carolina Youth Diabetes Association will support children with diabetes in South Carolina and surrounding counties of Georgia and North Carolina through the development of diabetes camping opportunities and school support programs. To accomplish this, SCYDA will recruit and develop a community of like-minded individuals and professionals to engage, encourage, empower, and inspire children with diabetes.
