Local group hosting free summer camp in Gulfport

Parents, are you looking to keep your kids busy for the summer?

There’s a free summer camp happening from June 1st through July 9th at the Gaston Point Community Center. The program is hosted by Extend a Hand, Help a Friend and it’s available to all school aged children. Call 228-574-5952 to register.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided and there will be plenty of physical activity to keep the kids moving as well as education so they won’t be taking a break from learning this summer.

A few field trips are also on the books, all provided at no cost to help local families. Jeanine ‘GMama’ Handy with Extend a Hand, Help a Friend said, “When a child is sitting at home and they don’t have anything to do, they tend to get in trouble. So, the parents are at work and we’re here to help the parents trying to work and give their kids a safer environment. We’re out here to give a safer environment to our kids because there’s too much going on in the world today.”

If you would like to assist in this free summer camp, donate at eahhaf.org. All donations are welcome whether it’s monetary or just snacks and equipment for the kids.
