Camp Noah Welcomes Disaster Survivors

If your child survived Hurricane Katrina, Rita or any other disaster, Camp Noah may be the place for them. The two-week-long camp is free for children in grades K through six.

This week, counselors are in training at Calvary Baptist Church in Nacogdoches. They will teach a Christian curriculum and help students deal with life after the storm. About 50 kids are expected to attend Camp Noah.

Carol Flores, Texas-Louisiana Coordinator for Camp Noah, said, "This camp is specifically for kids who have experienced disasters. In this case, we're responding to kids from Katrina and Rita. It is a Christian-based, faith-based day camp for kids to help process their experiences from the disaster."

Camp Noah starts July 31st and ends August 4th. The camp will be held at Calvary Baptist Church in Nacogdoches from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
