Young Siouxlanders get an up-close look at some interesting creatures


As one Siouxland camp wraps up activities for the season, a group of kids get a close look at some weird animals.

Every summer, the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Sioux City hosts a Bible day camp for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade. This year's theme is "Weird Animals."

With help from the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center, dozens of young Siouxlanders got a chance to meet some interesting creatures. It's fun weirdness with a learning twist and camp leaders say it's an experience that you don't get at school.

"In school, they don't really teach you a lot about it," said 8th grader and camp leader Daisy Risner. "They just teach you math and reading and stuff, and in science we just learn about history. So, I think it's pretty cool cause they get to learn about the snakes and the birds."

"The snake was friendly," said camper Damian Hancock. "It went into the centers pocket. That was really funny to me."

Sioux City's Immanuel Lutheran offers the "one-of-a-kind Bible adventure" camp every summer at no cost.
