It's called Camp Hope. A program run by the Salvation Army in Davenport that offers summer fun for less fortunate children who live at the Salvation Army Family Service Center. 

The children get to take part in a number of group activities, crafts, and spend some time outdoors. Sometimes the kids go swimming, to a movie, or bowling.   

Salvation Army Officers run  and manage the program.  

During the camp, teenage volunteers from the Youth Works program spend a week with the less fortunate children.   That's a national program involving youth mission teams.

This week, teens from churches in Wisconsin and  Illinois volunteered at the camp.

Sixteen year old volunteer Alex Weisenberger from Wisconsin wants the children to know that they are not alone. There are people who care for them and want them to succeed.

Abigail Dibadj is with Youth Works. She says it's good for the teenage volunteers to model good behavior.

Bible Study activities are also an important aspect of the camp. The kids sing songs and do arts and crafts that have a Biblical theme.

The teenage volunteers are thankful for the opportunity to share the gift of time with the children.
