SURING — The U-Nah-Li-Ya camp in Suring remains closed following storm damage on July 19th and 20th.

NBC26 visited the camp Monday, where they continue to clean up. Directors say it was a hard decision to close, since 500 kids use the camp every summer.

Hundreds of trees were blown down. Crews are removing them to make the camp safe again. So far, volunteers have donated thousands of hours of work, something managers are thankful for.

"The cool thing to see is how the immediate community has come together. Been sharing machines supplies and volunteering their time here and there to help each other recover," said Jordan Baxter, Director of Program and Marketing.

They hope to reopen as soon as it's safe. You can find updates on the camp's website.
