Nubability Wraps Up Camp Weekend
PERRY CO. -- Dozens of kids and their families wrapped up a special camp Sunday morning.
The Nubability Camp in Du Quoin held their awards ceremony. Since Thursday, limb-different kids have competed in a number of sports.
Jennifer Bricker was born without legs, but she grew up to be a professional gymnast. Bricker said she wasn't sure what to expect out of the camp, and it left her pleasantly surprised.
"I just thought it was going to be all just focused on disability, and it was just going to cater to that," said Bricker. "To me, I feel like that just causes more of a seperation, as in "us" versus "them," but this is not that at all. This is everybody! There's no us or them, it's just us. We're all together."
Organizers say this year was the greatest turnout since the camp started three years ago. Campers ranged in age from 4 to 24. Participants came from more than 20 different states.
