An early morning fire destroyed the gymnasium at a children's camp in Brooks on Wednesday.

The Christian camp has been teaching children since 1951. Its mission, according to the camp's website, is to 'promote the physical, social, and spiritual development of all' who utilize the programs and facilities.

WABI-TV reports no one was in the building when it caught fire when fire broke out, sometime before 9:00 Wednesday morning. The building was fully engulfed when crews arrived at the scene.
