This week at nine Springfield elementary schools, kids are making friends, learning social skills and getting ready to start their formal education.  They’re attending Kindergarten Camp, hosted by the Community Partnership of the Ozarks.  KSMU's Michele Skalicky reports.

The camp started Monday and goes through Friday at Bingham, Bissett, Boyd, Bowerman, Robberson, Watkins, Weaver, Westport and York Elementary Schools.
