HUNTINGTON STATION - A Huntington Station native is on a mission to volunteer with 50 youth camps across 50 states in just 100 days.

Chris Strub visited his hometown Monday to speak with children at Project PLAY & St. John's Camp. The camp offers activities and meals to hundreds of children. After his chat, the children taught Strub how to dance to their theme song.

The volunteer visit was Strub's 43rd. He said his mission is a simple one. "The best part really is inspiring people all around the country and, hopefully, all around the world to get involved with volunteer opportunities," he said.

Strub said his volunteer journey has cost him about $8,000 so far. Some of the money came from donations but most of it came from his pocket, according to Strub.

His next stop is Trenton.
