More than 25 campers will make the trip to the Salvation Army's regional summer camp in Lexington, Mississippi.

Campers will participate in many different activities including canoeing and hiking.

Representatives from the Salvation Army in CenLa say this camp gives those in need a boost of fun.

"There was a little that must have been maybe 6. He stood up and he said I am so thankful that, I lost all my toys, my house got burned down and I am so thankful that my sister and I got out okay. And I thought, you know, this is just so amazing for these kids to get out of that to come here and have fun and forget about whatever is going on. I am really proud to be a part of it," said Megan Cloud.

The Salvation Army downtown has sent children to the camp in Lexington for more than 50 years.
