The folks from Channel 9 in Denver have sent people from the 6 a.m. news to various camps around the state this week.
Wednesday, news guy Greg Moss (a former print guy gone to the dark side) did a few broadcasts from the Learning Camp up Spring Creek near Gypsum.
“He was so nice,” said Learning Camp boss Ann Cathcart. “He had a lot of fun, and got on a horse.
“It was really fun for the kids,” she added.
The Learning Camp is for kids with various learning disabilities who do academic work, ride horses, and, during this hot week, spend plenty of time at the camp’s swimming hole.
