Camp R.E.A.L. free to youth; sessions set for June and July
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department will conduct two summer camps for youth grades 5-9 at the Eddie Lee Smith Jr. Multipurpose Building in Holly Springs.
Each camp will accept 20 students, according to deputy Tamara Jeffries.
Camp dates are June 18-22 and July 23-27. Camp begins at 8 a.m. and is out at noon each day.
The camp is free but because of limited space, only one child per family may participate, Jeffries said. Parents are responsible for their child’s transportation to and from camp. Snacks will be provided.
“It is imperative that parents arrive with the child on time and pick them up promptly each day,” Jeffries said.
Camp topics include Responsibility, Esteem, Ambition, Leadership (R.E.A.L.). The fifth day of camp will be given to fun, a cookout and free T-shirts.
Applications for camp can be picked up at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department located at 819 West Street, Holly Springs. Deadline for application to the June camp is June 15 and deadline for the July camp is July 13.
For further information, contact deputy Tamara Jeffries or deputy Cathy Elliott at the sheriff’s department at 662-252-1311.
