Summer camp for area children with disabilities

Amarillo, TX - As kids all over the panhandle head off to summer camp, a four-week program at a local non-profit helps area kids with disabilities have some summer fun of their own.

Summer Fun Camp at the Turn Center allows disabled children to have fun while improving their motor skills at the same time.

The Turn Center is the product of two non-profit therapy organizations merging in 2010, and since then, the center has grown rapidly.

Parents say they know their children are in good hands there.

"They're good to her, and they're good to all these kids, and it's special for them to have somewhere to go. All kinds of kids go to their camps in the summer, and for these kids to be able to come here -- it means a lot," says Jody Rowland, parent of Turn Center patient. 

The Turn Center is run mainly on donations, and if you'd like to help, you can contact the center at 806-353-3596.
