Several people took on the waters of Lake Harner today.

Camp WACK is an organization that allows those with disabilities to partake in activites they usually would not be able to do.

The goal of the camp is to provide opportunities for children and adults with disabilities to gain confidence and dignity.

They participate in sports and recreation, including active-waterskiing.

Christyn Connolly has been a volunteer for several years.

She said the program's impact is the reason she continues to come back. "Upon my first time volunteering, being able to see kiddos who can't communicate be able to enjoy the same things you and I could is really really rewarding," said Connolly

The program includes several off-shore activities such as fishing, creative arts, and water games.
The camp continues through Thursday.
