WHEATLEY HEIGHTS, Long Island (WABC) -- An arts camp on Long Island is giving 12 young Ukrainian refugees a chance to go to day camp for free.
Camp Usdan operates on a plot of land with 140 acres of woods in Wheatley Heights.
They say summer camp is a place to step out of your comfort zone, but that started well before the summer for about a dozen kids, refugees from Ukraine who are new to the Long Island camp but are thrilled to have this chance.
It comes at a time when the children's country is at war with Russia. This camp represents a bright spot for them.
