COOPER CITY, Fla. (WSVN) — Kids at a Cooper City summer camp are spending their last days in camp feeding the less fortunate children in their community.

The campers from Camp Beth Emet in Cooper City raised enough money this summer to feed 20,000 children. The campers teamed up with the charity Feeding Children Everywhere and packed 20,000 meals on Friday.

During their time at Camp Beth Emet, the children enjoy sports, field trips and arts and crafts. They also learn they can help change the world.

The campers, as young as 4 years old, met their $5,000 goal through bake sales, sponsorships and carnivals. To reach that goal, some of the oldest campers decided to create a nail and temporary tattoo salon for some of the younger campers. The kids would bring a quarter and receive a manicure or tattoo, as well as the knowledge that they just fed a less fortunate child.
