Kids ages 6 through 17 are divided up into small groups during the day.

One of those activities is art, which camp volunteers find very helpful.

"Its gives them not only the opportunity to touch whats inside of themselves but to know that other people are searching and trying to find that release as well. It gives them a support group with the children as well as the adults that are there," said LindaJo Haythorn, Art Therapist.
