Camp Trios teaches children life skills to manage their diabetes

Jacob Haugen, 10, left, and Kaila Brown, 14, work together Tuesday on the “Pass the Spaghetti” challenge at the annual Camp Trios event for children diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. This year’s three-day camp is themed the “Amazing Diabetes Race” and featured various challenges like the television show. The 20 activities were designed as fun physical challenges and, in many cases, also provided education about managing diabetes. The spaghetti challenge was designed for two players to carry an uncooked piece of spaghetti between two paper plates without dropping or breaking it.
