Columbus police hosts 'D.A.R.E. to be Great' camp for kids

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Dozens of kids in Columbus wrapped up D.A.R.E. camp on Tuesday.

Kids from various elementary schools attended 30 days of activities designed to teach them life skills such as bullying, art and exercise.

The camp is a combined effort by the Columbus police and the Marshals Department. The kids also attended field trips to museums and the fire department.

"We are hoping to make a transition between elementary school and middle school, first of all being able to work in groups and teams. This is also the first time some of them are getting on school buses," Sgt. Donald Bush said.

D.A.R.E. stands for drug abuse resistance education and this is the fourth year of the camp.
