PSU Berks students return from camp in Newtown, Conn.

SPRING TWP., Pa. - Some Penn State Berks students are offering a helping hand to children affected by the Sandy Hook school shooting.

Twenty-six students recently returned from a trip to Newtown, Conn. as part of Camp Noah, a week-long day camp for children whose communities have been impacted by disaster.

The idea was to provide a safe and caring atmosphere for the children to share their stories.

"Some of them had siblings in the school. Some of them were actually in the school. So it was really interesting. It was very emotional sometimes," said Shanik Hidalgo-Nunez.

Twenty six people were killed at Sandy Hook when a gunman opened fire last December.

About 75 kids in grades first tough sixth participated in the camp.
