With the end of school just about a week away most parents, including myself, have already felt the cold shiver up the spine that is brought on us by bored children at home during the Summer. There are a lot of great Summer activities your youngster could be involved in.

Many of our area churches will sponsor vacation Bible schools, there are educational opportunities at the University of Louisiana and there is a really neat camp I just found out about. The best part about this camp is it's free!

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is hosting a kids hunting and fishing camp June 25-29 and July 23-27. Kids need to have transportation daily and must be between the ages of 12 and 16. Registration is limited to 50 kids and the deadline to apply is May 25th so submit your child's application now. The camp will cover various aspects of outdoor activities and each child will receive a free rod and reel at the end of the camp.
