I need help with this logic problem

Problem:
It's taken her almost a month, but Mandy can finally remember which of her five children gets picked up by which driver for his or her ride to summer camp! Each child (including Justin) attends a different specialty camp, and each is picked up every morning by a counselor who drives a different make of car. Now if Mandy could only remember who prefers what for lunch! From the info provided, determine the type of camp (one is gymnastics) each child attends and the make of car (one is Saab) that takes him or her there.
1. Neither Allie nor Cole is the child who attends the camp devoted to arts and crafts. Neither Lauren nor Tricia is picked up by the Mazda driver.
2.Tricia attends drama camp. Cole is picked up by the Saturn driver. The driver of the Ford works at the horseback-riding camp.
3.Cole isn't the child who attends swimming camp (who is neither the child driven to camp in the Mazda nor the one driven in the Volvo) Lauren doesn't go to horseback-riding camp.

I have 3/4 of it worked I just cant get it completed. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Justin-Arts&Crafts-Mazda
Allie-HosebackRiding-Ford
Cole-Gymnastics-Saturn
Tricia-Drama-Volvo

I assumed that the clue "Cole isn't the child who attends swimming camp (who is neither the child driven to camp in the Mazda nor the one driven in the Volvo)" means that Cole is not the one in swimming camp, in Mazda, and not in Volvo. And that the child in the swimming camp is not the one in Mazda nor Volvo.
