AUGUSTA, Kan. (KAKE) - Camp Discovery in Augusta is a camp created to support children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

The camp strives to help children learn how to monitor their symptoms and gain some independence, while having normal camp fun.

"When I'm low, I feel light-headed, shaky, and like, hungry. When I'm high, it's like thirsty," said camper Jared Jacobucci.

Jacobucci was diagnosed at age five and this is his second year at Camp Discovery, thanks to a scholarship program called Team Schnak.

Kent Schnakenburg, the founder of Team Schnak whose niece was diagnosed with the illness, said they are sending 36 children to Camp Discovery this year thanks to donations made to the organization.

"It's something we look forward to every year," said Schnakenburg. "It's been really, um, really fulfilling I guess. It gives me a real purpose every day."
