Summer camp isn't just about splashing in the pool anymore.

Youth campers at the Lincoln Racquet Club sold Kool-Aid and homemade cookies to raise money for charity Friday. All the proceeds go to an organization of their choice, and the kids picked the Capital Humane Society.

"I've always loved animals, and I had a dog business walking dogs," 11-year-old Gillian Young said when asked why she picked the Humane Society.

"They were like, 'I want to go first, I want to go first' they were so excited," Counselor Kasey Utrup said.

Counselors say the lemonade stand raised around $75. The kids will take a field trip to the Humane Society in a couple weeks to present the check.
