POMPTON LAKES - A week-long summer camp for special needs children is in full swing at St. Mary's Parish in Pompton Lakes.

Local teenagers volunteer their time to help run the camp each summer. The campers attend for free and the program operates primarily on donations.

Volunteers teach bible lessons using techniques that kids can relate to and they make it fun by including art, dance and music.

The church also has programs and activities for older kids, and adults with special needs.
