Lowndes County - A Lowndes County camp is teaching students how to be responsible and safe in school.

King Solomon Missionary Church held their annual Life Step Community Camp today in Lake Park.

The camp teaches students age five to 16 how to recognize gang, drug and other criminal activity in schools and on the streets.

Organizers hope to give them the knowledge and strength to stay away from it.  "That's the purpose. With the high problem of crime and drugs in our community, we want to make a big impact on our children," says Reverend JD Martin.

They say camps like this are crucial to help cut back truancy in the community.

They believe the camp, in its fourth year, is helping Lowndes County to do that.
