ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The National Youth Sports Program is wrapped up their 43rd year at ASU today.

The campers performed their routines that they have been practicing for the past week.

In the final day, the campers got a chance to win all kinds of prizes.

All the gifts were donated by community members in Albany.

From bikes, to TV's, to Ipad's.

These kids got the chance to bring these donated gifts home.

All the kids received a goodie bag filled with all kinds of treats at the end of the day.

The NYSP liaison, Jesse Massey said this program is such a big part of this community, and what it does for these kids.

"It's an olive branch to extending the communities helping young people being able to have a place to go," said Massey, "have things to do, keep their mind constructed until school starts in late July."

Massey hopes that each year this program will grow because he knows first hand, all the good NYSP does for the youth in the community.
