CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Dozens of children are getting a chance to learn about water safety.

“We learned about water safety and the barriers,” fourth grader Jayla Allen said.

“If you can’t get out this way, what’s another option,” another young swimmer wondered. “The steps.”

For the next four days children will be attending the "Zac Foundation's water safety camp.”

They’ll learn how to swim and how to stay safe while in the water and what to do in case of an emergency.

Classes are for children ages 6 to 9 years old.

The camp is free for members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Coastal Bend.
