Some kids in Lehigh County are having a blast and learning some valuable lessons at a special summer camp.

Camp Red Jacket is underway at Camp Fowler in Orefield.

The 3-day camp is for kids with type-one diabetes. They get to have all the fun of a regular summer camp with arts and crafts, sports and games, but they also learn about blood sugar testing and nutrition.

The camp is organized by the Lehigh Valley Health Network.
