Albany- Construction is underway at The Fish Camp off Gillionville Road. The 73-acre non-denominational camp will be available free of charge to all organizations.

An outcry from youth in the community prompted the project.

"They don't have a place to go, out here they can come they can build a bonfire, they can build relationships with kids, and hopefully have a good quality place to meet," said Larry Walden, member of the Fish House Camp Board.

Organizers hope The Fish Camp will open in June. The whole project will cost 400-thousand dollars.

You can find out more about the camp and how to donate at www.thefishcamp.org .
