Pastor Howard Dotson of the Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church in Sparks said the purpose of the camp is to help as many as 100 students heal through recreation and motivation.
Organizers heard from many mothers whose children were traumatized by the shooting, he
said, and registration was offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Students were offered free overnight accommodations, meals and transportation with the help of donations and a $12,000 grant from a Presbyterian program.
"We want to make sure kids who were most traumatized get the benefits," Dotson
