Summer camp is always a special thing for kids, but it might be even more important for children with special needs. However, one place in our area may struggle this season to make all of those smiles happen.

The reason? One of Dyberry Day Camp's biggest fundraisers, that helps send kids to camp in July, is struggling for participants.

But you may be able to be a part of the solution by taking part in an upcoming "Color Run" at Wallenpaupack Area Middle School in the Hawley area.

Newswatch 16 Ryan Leckey visited Wallenpaupack Area on Wednesday to explain how the event works and the difference the fundraiser makes for the summer camp in Wayne County and those kids with special needs.

  • WHEN: Saturday, May 13
  • TIME: Registration begins at 8 a.m. The race starts at 9 a.m.
