A unique summer camp wraps up in Boise Friday. About 20 middle school age kids spent two weeks making art projects, going on field trips and singing songs. All pretty typical camp activities but for half the participants it was a new experience. They’re refugees from half a dozen countries on three continents. Boise’s Department of Parks and Recreation teamed up with the Idaho Office for Refugees for the first Boise International Camp.
