LANCASTER, Pa. - Camp Schreiber in Lancaster is designed for kids and adults with disabilities. On any given day, during the five week camp, there are about 45 campers participating.

"A lot of our activities are inside. If they’re outside it’s no longer than 10 – 15 minutes and usually in the morning because around lunchtime is when it usually gets much warmer than in the mornings," said camp director, Calli Graver.

"Inside. I like being inside because it’s cool," said camper, Kyle  Emerich.

"We’re fortunate to have a relationship here with the Church of the Apostles that lets us use this space and all of the spaces in here are air-conditioned so we are lucky to have those spaces and we supplement with kind of themed activities," said Graver.

Thursday's theme was Halloween. The activities included a costume contest and "mummy" wrapping competition where campers wrapped each other up in toilet paper.

They did head outside to quickly water plants they planted when it was a bit cooler. The camp runs through to the end of July so, they are continuing to think of fun things to do inside!
