Inquirer staff writer Zoe Tillman reports:
During their all-expenses-paid trip to Walt Disney World this past weekend, the children of Creative Steps day camp were treated to a surprise visit from their host, media mogul Tyler Perry.
Perry - a popular African American producer, actor and writer - sponsored the trip after learning about the northeast Philadelphia campers, who were allegedly asked not to return to a suburban swim club because of their race. The state Human Relations Commission has a pending investigation against The Valley Club in Huntingdon Valley.
About sixty-five campers, each accompanied by a guardian, flew into the Orlando, Fla. theme park on July 31 and returned to Philadelphia on August 3.
