Camp Happy Hearts puts a smile on kids faces

Horry County, SC - HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Mercy Care hosted its annual Camp Happy Hearts on Saturday. The Camp is a one day event for children that have lost loved ones.

The kids ranged from ages 5 to 18, and about 80 kids showed up for the event. They rode horses, played games and watched a magic game among other events.

The one-day camp was held at Christ United Methodist Church. Mercy Care hosts the camp twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.

Tom Badurski, director of the children's program at Mercy Care, says it's a great way for the kids to let loose and have a little fun.

"They enjoy themselves they have a great time," he said. "It's a chance for them to be a child and just let all of their worries and everything go."
