GLENWOOD (WVVA) -- Once again the WV Elks Disabled Children's Camp for the Mentally and Physically Disabled has kicked off this week.

This year's camp is being held at the Mercer County 4-H Camp in Glenwood. Activities at the camp include swimming, arts & crafts, carnival games, seasonal themes, a professional wrestling show, bowling, and various sports games. About 60 people, ages 8-70 are attending the camp.

There are also special visits from local fire, police, and EMT departments.

Organizers say all of the activities are to help the campers maximize their abilities while minimizing their disabilities.

The WV Elks Disabled Children's Camp has been providing a free annual summer camp for the mentally and physically disabled since the 1960's.
