The kids at this camp are poked and prodded with needles up to 10 times a day, but they're used to it. They have type 1 diabetes.
During session one of Camp Winona, the Florida Diabetes Camp in DeLand, Fla., 161 kids have been doing their best to have a normal camp experience since Monday.
Counselors go through an intense two-day crash course, learning everything they can about diabetes and how to handle children who have it, said UF business senior Troy Pashuck.
His fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, donated $16,000 raised by its annual dance competition, Surf Frenzy, to the camp.
