Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – LSU AgCenter 4-H Youth Development is offering a SET (Science, Engineering and Technology) Camp for military kids on September 5-7, at the Wesley Center in Woodworth, La.


The event is part of the Operation Military Kids program, which partners communities and organizations throughout America to support the children of deployed service members.

SET Camp includes activities in robotics, engineering, forensics and rocketry and is available to youth ages 7-14 who are dependents of National Guard, Air National Guard and Army Reserve members.

“This is a great opportunity for military kids to meet other youth who are going through similar issues,” said Susan Dawson Riley, coordinator of Operation Military Kids for Louisiana 4-H.

“This event will help them acquire some technical knowledge, develop organizational and leadership skills and participate in recreational activities – all in a fun, social setting,” Dawson Riley added.

The event, funded by a grant from the U.S. Army, is free of charge to approved campers.

To register for the camp, contact Susan Dawson Riley at 225-578-5786 or sdriley@agcenter.lsu.edu or Caitie Davis at 225-578-2974 or cldavis@agcenter.lsu.edu . More information is available at www.operationmilitarykids.org.
