“Activites for the kids include art projects, and field trips. Guest speakers come and talk with the children on various topics related to their community,” O’brien said.

“The children go on field trips like bowling and do physical exercises,” she continued.

“St. Charles Parish Recreation Department helps fund the camp.”For more information about the camp contact Sandra O’Brien at 985-785-6829.
