It's not exactly Cancun or Florida, but Camden is becoming a spring break destination. Do-gooder college students have been spending a week trying to help fix up the New Jersey city that often ranks as among the nation's poorest and most dangerous.

One nonprofit group says it has hosted 200 students from 18 different colleges this spring.

The volunteers at Urban Promise have been helping maintain the group's schools on the Camden-Pennsauken border.
