FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp has now started its second week of summer camp activities.


The adult group is there this week with ages ranging from 23 to around 65 years old.


These adults with significant disabilities will get to enjoy summer camping fun with swimming, canoeing, fishing
and singing to name a few.


"We've given our staff a challenge saying," said Terri Daniels, camp director.  "We hope that they can meet the challenge of this week being as good as last week because last week was amazing. This morning they all got here and it was like a big family reunion, so we're ready for a great week."

The Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp has been going on for over 50 years and is run by qualified volunteers as counselors
and staff.
