A special summer camp designed for children with disabilities wrapped up today in Port Aransas.  It’s called Camp Sunshine.

This is the second year this camp for children with disabilities has been held in Port Aransas.  It’s sponsored by a non-profit group from the Denton area.

The camp began Tuesday and it’s goal is to teach these special kids social skills while having a great time at the beach.

"You get to see students grow and children grow, they’re very shy at the beginning but they open up at the very end and just smiles on the faces of the volunteers, the parents and the students," said Allison Racca with North Texas Camp Sunshine.

"Yeah, the sandcastle’s awesome. I built a crusty crab," camper, Braden Mays, told us.

The camp is free of cost for the kids and their parents possible through donations.
