South Central Kentucky Kids on the Block is teaching kids inclusion with camp

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – One local organization is using a free camp to educate kids on the importance of inclusion.

South Central Kentucky Kids on the Block, for the third year, is having their “accepting differences” camp.

During the camp 3rd through 6th graders learn to value other kids around them regardless of their disabilities, like autism or down syndrome.

Outside of puppet programs teaching this lesson, kids use hands-on crafting and play scripts to express inclusion and respect towards others.

At the end of the camp, the kids will hold a presentation for their parents on everything they learned.

One camper, Landon Yawn, says anyone that bullies should put themselves in the other kid’s shoes.

The camp is free so that money is no obstacle if any kid wants to participate.
