Volunteers and camp officials are working hard to prepare Camp Eagle Ridge for its opening next month.
Now entering its second year of existence, Camp Eagle Ridge has expanded with new activities and needed items, thanks to support from the community. The camp recently added a 175-foot zip line.
"We had an anonymous donor to donate our pavilion here," said Dewayna Roberts camp director. "And The Optimist Club has really been working with us and helping us out and they donated our water well. And Ron Smith has put workers to work, and he has got our obstacle course built for us, and he has donated every bit of that, workers and everything."
"I just thought it was going to be a good idea," said Josh Herrington of Ron Smith and Associates. "There's going to be a lot of kids coming in here. Some disabled kids and some not; high school kids that are really going to spend a lot of time together, working together, developing good skills, good work ethic, and physical activity."
