GLEN JEAN, WV (WOAY) – Glen Jean, West Virginia is yet again the scene of summertime sports action as lots of campers make their way out to Camp Royal for the fifth year.
A non-profit Christian camp with a focus on helping kids advance in skateboarding, biking, and all activities action-sport-related, they are once again excited to welcome the successful camp back to the community.
“We have so much to be thankful for and look back at all of the miracles and all of the support the community has given us, and it really feels like this is where we belong long-term, that’s been the goal,” says Brandon Heidemann, an instructor at Camp Royal. Memorial Day marked the beginning of the day camp where around 100 local kids came out to bike, scooter, and skateboard. Next week kicks off their 7-week- long overnight camp that brings in campers from all over the U.S.
