Discovery week                                         Photos by Steve Spoden
    “KIDS AT THE ROUND TABLE” was the theme for this year’s Camp Discovery, a weeklong day camp for children with diabetes, which was held June 15-19 at Healthtrack Sports Wellness in Glen Ellyn. With the help of over 40 volunteers, the 51 young campers enjoyed games, swimming, crafts, miniature golf and other activities. They also learned more about their diabetes. Lending a hand at camp again this year was Lombard Firefighter/Paramedic Tom Willis who, along with his daughters Vikkie and Elyse, have volunteered their help for 19 years. Vikkie was a camper when she was 5 years old.The camp also received another $1,000 donation from Lombard Firefighters Union Local 3009. Pictured in the bottom photo are camp organizers (front row, l. to r.) co-director Abbey Vavrik; Sue Apsey, American Diabetes Association; co-director Elyse Willis; and Laura Kozak, medical staff; (back row, l. to r.) Jody Gosain, medical staff director; and Tom Willis. Not pictured is Lisa Testolin, dietician.
