BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says Friday is the deadline to apply for its free summer day camps in Baton Rouge.
The camps are for children 12 to 16 years old who don't have a hunter or boater education certificate.
They're scheduled June 25-29 and July 23-27 at the Waddill Outdoor Education Center in Baton Rouge.
Participants who attend every day can earn state boater and hunter education certifications. LDWF will also offer outdoor classes and activities such as fish identification, fishing and canoeing and skeet shooting.
The online application is at www.wlf.louisiana.gov/summerdaycamp2012 . Parents must fill out an application for each child and may register each child for only one camp.
Each camp can handle 25 children. The department will notify parents whose children are selected.
