Nashville  --  A camp for some special children began Monday in South Georgia. Thirty-one special needs children, ages 6 through 15, came to Camp Arrow for a week. It is held at Camp Tygart in Berrien County.

Volunteers say this will be one of the best weeks of the summer for many of these campers.

"I think its great because so many children don't have anything to do for the summer and at this camp we do so many things, and they will talk about this camp for a year," said Special Activities Director Becky Christo.

"We get to play art and crafts, play music and go swimming, and Thursday night we do the dance," said Camper Chris Johns.

Campers' disabilities range from Autism to Cerebral Palsy.
