Fund-raiser set to help kids attend camp

The Salvation Army's Boys and Girls Club of Big Spring will be holding a community yard sale Saturday, May 21, to raise much-needed funds to send local youngsters to camp in June.Sonnet Hildebrand, director of the local Boys and Girls Club, said the yard sale is slated for 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Salvation Army office, located at 811 W. Fifth St., and will help give children within the Boys and Girls Club program a chance to attend a five-day camp.“The camp is really an amazing time for the kids,” said Hildebrand. “They get to take part in activities like horseback riding, fishing, paintball and swimming. They also get a chance to play a lot of different sports, such as football, basketball and baseball, as well as take part in a ropes course.“Morning activities include songs, praise and devotion. There are nighttime activities, as well, like movies and scavenger hunts, to help the kids with their social development.”
