Covington Police to Host 4th Annual Kids Camp
Chief Tim Lentz announces that the Covington Police Department will be hosting its fourth annual free kids’ camp this summer for Covington area children. The summer camp will focus on challenging children to be safe, live healthy, and enjoy life. Each day will focus on educating the children about different topics in a fun and positive way, such as educational safety, health and fitness, familiarization with local emergency services, along with pet and animal education. The final day of the camp will be a “fun” day, consisting of recreational and water related activities.
This year’s summer camp will be held June 5th through June 9th, from 8:00AM to 12:00PM each day at William Pitcher Junior High School. Families that live in the Covington area and would like to register their children ages 6-13 for the camp need to turn in their completed applications to the Covington Police Department no later than June 1st. Applications can be picked up in person or downloaded from the link below. Parents who have questions about the camp may contact Detective Kevin Collins at (985)892-8500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also got to talk to Chief Chris Kaufman about the Louisiana Veterans Festival. It is this weekend at the NS Harbor Center. The whole day will be filled with good music, food and fun and it all helps the ESTHFH build another house for a deserving veteran. Find out more in the interview below.
