TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Rotary Club of Tallahassee Southside prepared dinner for local children with disabilities attending a special summer camp.

WTXL was at the Wallwood Boy Scout Camp on Lake Talquin in Quincy as the organization served 37 teenagers a special spaghetti dinner as part of an annual service at Rotary Youth Camp (RYC).

RYC allows children and teenagers with disabilities to be part of an overnight camp, which is a big deal for these kids.

Many of them need a nurse or two every day, so the camp is a chance for them to do things other kids do -- and give their parents and caretakers a much-needed break.
