Campers enjoyed arts and crafts, playing on the jungle gym, and enjoying a brand-new pool! The state gave Camp Courant $850,000 to renovate the pool.

"We have a lot of activities going on but I think the most exciting activity is the what's going on down in the swimming pool, we have a brand new 130,000-gallon pool and the kids are absolutely loving it!" said McKinley Albert, the executive director and CEO of Camp Courant.

Just last week FOX 61 helped raise $60,000 to send kids to camp through a telethon.
