Camp Walton

Posted By on Mon, Apr 17, 2006 at 5:43 AM

[image-1]The Morning News features today Camp War Eagle, a multi-million-dollar creation of Alice Walton through the family foundation. It will be a summer camp like no other, on the shore of Beaver Lake. It will be free to kids from families making less than $60,000 a year (worth almost $2,000 for a two-week session), and emphasize Christianity, patriotism and the environment. It is to open its gates to 2,400 kids this summer and provide help to kids year-round. The Morning News photo shows a huge water slide under constructrion.
