WARREN COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette Urban Ministries used an annual camp to help more than 80 kids from low income families.
The LUM Camp started Tuesday at Hanging Rock Camp in Warren County.
The camp was for children ages eight through ten whose families were served by LUM in the past year.
Activities at the camp included hiking, swimming, and arts and crafts.
LUM Executive Director, Joe Micon said Purdue educators will also help teach kids about the camp's theme, "Excitement of Engineering."
"They will learn basic science, basic engineering, they already learned this morning that an engineer solves problems. So for the rest of the week they'll be solving engineering problems," said Micon.
"It's a lot of fun and you meet a lot of new people," said Koby Myers, LUM camper.
Micon said the camp was made possible by more than 220 donors.
The camp will run until Friday.
