GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A Connecticut based group called 'The ZAC Foundation' will be at the Green Bay YMCA to help kids and their parents learn more about water safety.
The ZAC Foundation was founded by Karen and Brian Cohn who lost their son in a swimming pool. Zach was caught in the pool's drainage system.
The week long camp will teach more than one hundred five to nine year olds the importance of water safey with swimming classes, classroom instruction and hands on activities. The Bellevue Fire Department will join the foundation, Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay and YMCA to make the water safer for kids of all ages. "Some kids are afraid of the water when they come here and seeing them at the end of the week, just get excited about it. I love when they say, I'm going to share this with my brother or sister. That's what it's about. It's about teaching water safety to everyone," one camp teacher said.
