Our Story:


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.
