East Texas Summer Camp Offers Free Day Camp For Special Needs Children

For eleven years an East Texas Christian summer camp has filled children's lives with swimming, fishing and even some singing.  This year, the Rockin' C Ranch wanted to do something special for those that can't always join in on the fun.  All week, more than 30 special needs children and adult get to ride horses, feed some cows and sing along with the counselors.  Best of all, they get to do it all for free.

"For a lot of them, it's their first time to go fishing, first time to swim, first time ride a horse, first time to get eggs from under a chicken and first time to feed a baby calf," said Rockin' C Ranch Executive director Matt Clap.  "All the great things we do here.  They seem to really enjoy it."  If you would like more information on the camp go to our homepage and click on the Know More on 7 link.  There you will find Rockin' C Ranch.
