WARNER ROBINS, Ga-- Gary McGhee opened his "Bridging the Gap" summer camp for underprivileged youth two months ago for the first time ever. He explained he believes the children of today are missing vital elements of growing up.
"Kids are really missing one of the major components, and that is love." said McGhee.
McGhee explained that his childhood wasn't terrible, but wasn't as good as it could have been. He believes his childhood and his faith gave allowed him to help others in a positive way.
"God began to show me not only how to address them in my life but to help address them in the lives of others," said McGhee.
Lindell Flowers is a soon to be senior at Mercer University. He works closely with the children each day. He explained when the summer is over, he hopes the children leave knowing one important thing.
"No matter where you come from if you strive and if you put your effort in, you can do anything that you want," said Flowers.
McGhee explained the camp could still use help from volunteers and donations to make the learning experience even better for the children.
