"Just being there for the kids and being able to be there in a positive light has made all the difference. It increases confidence and that goes so far for the kids, and just letting the kids know they can do it, I mean, that is second to none," said Dakota Crow with Boys and Girls Club of the Muskegon Lakeshore.
Organizers are anticipating 400 to 450 kids per day for the camps.
