Salvation Army In Covington Accepting Applications For Summer Music Camp

The Salvation Army in Covington is now taking applications for its daytime Summer Music Camp, which runs July 30 through Aug. 3. There are 20 openings for children grades K-5.

The camp begins daily at 9 a.m. and concludes at 5 p.m. Cost for the week is $25.00. A mandatory final recital and graduation will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5.

Application may be made weekdays at the Salvation Army, 115 S. Lexington, Covington, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Summer Music Camp is designed to introduce children to a variety of music experiences, including ensemble singing and solfege, music theory and rhythm, brass instruments, keyboards and classical recorders.

Children who participate will be eligible to continue free weekly group music rehearsals at the Salvation Army during the school year.

The Summer Music Camp will also include daily Bible lessons, daily field trips to local parks, and lunch and snacks.

Established in 1865 as an evangelical part of the Universal Christian Church, the Salvation Army has been operating in the United States for 130 years, helping needy people in God’s name without discriminating.

Each year, nearly 30 million Americans from 5,000 communities receive assistance through the Salvation Army’s broad array of social services that includes outreach to the elderly and ill, assistance for the disabled, opportunities for underprivileged children, food for the hungry, clothing and shelter for the homeless and relief for victims of disaster.

Eighty-two cents of every dollar goes to carry out these services.

The Salvation Army’s work in Covington is funded by local giving.
