CLEVELAND - For the past 10 years, kids with special needs have been coming to the Lighthouse Summer Camp in Cleveland.
Parents are concerned that the summer camp may close, based on rumors that have been circulating.
"We are transitioning from school-year programs to full-year programs, so we don't really know what the positioning will look like or the staffing will look like. We really don't know how the camp will run, but we know there will be one," said Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities media coordinator Lisa Stevens.
A Lighthouse appreciation rally was held on the grounds of William Pat Day School, which is home to Lighthouse, and parents were out to support the camp and hope to keep the kids dreams alive.
Parents say if this camp closes, there will be no good summer camp available for children with disabilities.
"These kids are kids that haven't been welcome at other camps. They are all unique. This camp is very unique and it's education based," Annette Scott said.
