LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Angelina Beautiful Clean is having their yearly Eco Camp June 1-5 at First Presbyterian Church in Lufkin.

Kids from kindergarten through fourth grade will learn how to save the Earth by making crafts out of recycled items like floppy disks, playing games, and learning songs about going green.  A different speaker from the community is also brought in each day for the science session the kids attend.

"They're just so excited about everything they've learned and all the crafts. This whole camp is revolved around reducing and reusing and recycling," said DeShea Franks, a science teacher at the camp.

Kids fifth grade and older are Junior Counselors at the camp.

The camp wraps up Friday with a program at 11:45 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Lufkin.
