Sing a Song of Diabetes Camp

There's a quick fix when it's cold outside and you are missing camp. Jaime Yetra, Clara Barton Camp alumna, tackled it recently with a Facebook post requesting that her camp friends post their favorite camp songs.

The songs kept coming and coming, along with a warming bit of camp banter.

Diabetes Camp: What You Should Know
