LOCAL ACTIVITIES

Police Summer Camp: Applications for the Haverhill Police Department's GREAT/DARE Days summer camp are available in the lobby of the Police Station, 40 Bailey Blvd. The camp, held at Consentino Middle School, is free to Haverhill children ages 8 to 11 old and runs weekdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., July 9 through Aug. 17. The camp consists of scheduled recreational activities, guest speakers and field trips. Parents/guardians of children planning to participate in this program will be asked to fill out a permission slip, including medical information, and return it to the Haverhill Police Department no later than June 29. Parents/Guardians will need to provide a snack and lunch for their child. Police ask that parents arrange for their children's transportation and inform them of those arrangements so that campers are not left stranded at the end of the day. Campers who actively participate in all activities on a daily basis and attend camp on a regular basis will be considered for field trips throughout the summer.
