Excited campers take part Monday in the opening ceremony for Camp Bluebonnet at Variety’s Peaceable Kingdom Retreat. About 200 students are participating in the camp for children with diabetes and their siblings.

A local nonprofit benefiting children with special needs will be building a new inclusive playground the weekend of Sept. 21.

Variety’s Peaceable Kingdom Retreat for Children in partnership with Keurig, Dr Pepper, Cinemark and KaBOOM will “transform an empty site into a kid-designed, state-of-the-art playground in just six hours at Variety’s Peaceable Kingdom Retreat for Children,” according to a release sent by Stacy Bruce, the president and executive director of Variety the Children’s Charity of Texas.
