DEDHAM, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Students are helping a local camp get cleaned up before its summer campers arrive.
Students from Brewer High School were painting, fixing things, and cleaning every inch of Camp Capella today. Their involvement is part of the statewide youth philanthropy program, Jumpstart Our Youth (JOY). JOY is a non-profit that makes students do hands-on work to make their surrounding communities better.
"We obviously couldn't do what we do here in the classroom, so it's just great to help out physically, as well as, you know, just being there and saying, 'hey, we support you,'" Amanda Hill, a student at Brewer High School, said.
The students also presented a check to Camp Capella for $600. Here's more information on how you can sign up to attend Camp Capella this summer.
