ZAC Camp teaches children water safety

Green Bay - More than 100 kids are learning about water safety this week at the Green Bay East side YMCA. It's all part of ZAC Camp camp that's funded by the Zac Foundation in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club. The camp aims to teach kids, ages five to ten, how to swim and the importance of water safety.

"We'll have kids in swim lessons on the first day who don't want to even put their toes in the water or get in the water because they're very fearful. By the end of the week, they're jumping in and going down our waterslide and having a great time," said Aquatic Director Wendy Grelson,

The Zac Foundation was founded in 2008 after Karen and Brian Cohn's son, Zachary, drowned in a swimming pool.

This is the fifth year the program is being offered at the Green Bay YMCA.
