NEWBERRY — Newberry Young Life gave 11 students and three leaders the opportunity to travel to SharpTop Cove, a Young Life camp in Jasper Georgia. Many of the participating youths were able to attend because Newberry County residents gave to camp scholarships. During the camp students were able to swim, hike, participate in theme nights and worship the Lord.
