Elementary students in the Lakehead Public Board in Thunder Bay, Ont., had the opportunity to improve their English skills this summer by going to camp.

The three-week program caters to students who need more language development and focuses on providing that learning in a fun setting. 

The CBC's Logan Turner visited the camp this week and spoke with Michele Ruberto, one of the program teachers,  and some of the students.
