Summer camps begin at Joplin's The Bridge

Updated:

Some Four State kids say they're having a blast this summer at day camp.

Joplin's The Bridge is offering camps at two different times this summer.  One started today at the Christian-based organization and lasts until Friday.  The second camp is in July.

"We know summer can kind of be a boring time, and so we want to provide them a place where they can learn how to do cool stuff, and have a lot of fun and maybe get a little messy and just break up the boredom of summer a little bit," says Logan Greer of The Bridge.

Admission for most kids is $95.

"We have really generous donors who have donated scholarships so if you've been affected by the tornado in any way you can get into camp free, no questions asked," says Greer.

"We have Bible study and it's really fun," says summer camp student Gill Salgado.  "You get to talk about Jesus and you really get to share your life with all these people."

Some of the camp's activities focus on sports, while others include crafts and drama.
