Some kids and their grandparents had a fun time in Madison County on Tuesday.

Kids of all ages spent the day with their grandmas and grandpas to celebrate 'Grandparent's Day' at Camp Shenandoah Springs. They all enjoyed each others company while rock climbing, riding horses, climbing ropes, and sliding down on a zip line.

The event was organized by a non-denominational religious group, and all who attended said it was a fun time.

"It's cool because we get to hang out, and do fun stuff," said Granddaughter Lauren Walthall who was attending the event.

"It just builds memories for all of us while we are here enjoying God's country, and good friends. We're just delighted to have the opportunity," said Grandmother Mary Anne Walthall who also attended the event.

"I think it's remarkable the many things they have set us for us to enjoy, and to be with our grandchildren," said Grandfather Bob Slaven.

Camp Shenandoah Springs has been operating the camp for more than 25 years. The camp operates on donations from the community.
