An action camp packed with fun and adventure is making headlines here in Utah. It’s the National Ability Center’s “Action Camp.” The camp is for kids 9-16 years old, who have amputations and spinal cord injuries. It all started when Jack Rubenstein celebrated hi bar mitzvah last year and was set to be showered with gifts and money. Instead of money, Jack asked his friends and family to donate money to create a camp both he and his friend could attend. Jack raised $20,000 and created a special Action Camp that runs once in the winter and once in the summer.The camp that was first held last summer, pairs Emerging Paralympic athletes with kids with disabilities, to provide training and mentorship, while enjoying a host of activities.
