MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Children affected by the deadly tornado that struck north Minneapolis in May will have a chance to recover at a special summer camp.

Camp Noah opens a five-day run Monday. Several north Minneapolis churches along with Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota are offering the day camp.

Organizers say the activities are designed to help kids deal with their fears and to make new friends.

The camp will serve children from first through sixth grade. All children are welcome.

St. Olaf Lutheran Church, Salem Lutheran Church and Jordan New Life Community Church are hosting the camp. The cost is $10 per child.

    A summer camp in North Minneapolis?

    Is this where they teach little Shaquika how to make welfare babies and little Deandre how to shoot a gun sideways?

    I understand the skepticism based on all the negative news that comes out of North Minneapolis. Yes, some of the children up there are tragically exposed to a lot of crime, drugs, poverty, and broken homes. But there are those in the community who truly are trying to make a difference in the lives of these children. I know the churches that are hosting this camp — especially St. Olaf –and if ever there is going to be an opportunity for these children to feel unconditional love and acceptance, it will be at the camp St Olaf is hosting. The congregation is made up of great people who truly want to be good role models for these children and guide them toward a secure and happy future. I am thankful that such a camp is going on. Thank you to everyone who is putting this camp together and making a difference in these childrens’ lives.
