ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Advocacy Resource Center will be offering it's first ever summer camp for kids with disabilities.

The camp will be open to students in elementary and middle school.

It will be located at the ARC's new child development center on Stuart Avenue. 

There are 30 spots available on a first come, first serve basis.

Staff said the program will provide the support to kids with disabilities, like helping them with social skills. 

"For children with disabilities that still need a little social integration, therapy. They can continue their therapy here if they already have streamline services for related service so we're really excited about that," said Deputy Director DeAnna Julian. 

Advocacy Resource Center camp will run June 5th through July 27th. 

Parents have until May to sign up their kids. 

The summer camp costs $125 for one kid and $225 for two kids.
