THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - 36 kids with multiple disabilities enjoyed a day on the farm Wednesday.

Kids taking part in Camp ARROW rode horses, enjoyed arts and crafts, and much more at the Singletary Farm in Thomasville.

The camp is a week-long residential camp designed to meet the special needs of children with multiple mental and physical disabilities. Many of the youngsters on the farm had never even been on a horse before, and they had lots of fun.

"For some of these kids it's the most exciting thing they do in their year. We compare it to Disneyworld for them. It's just a thrill for them they get to do things other kids get to do all the time and we make it possible for them to do it here at camp," said Susan Brook, Camp ARROW Co-Director.

The camp started 36 years ago. Most of the camp's activities take place in Hahira...but they were in Thomasville just for Wednesday.

Other activities this week include swimming, music, even a dance.
