Twenty youth in Louisiana are taking part in an Operation Military Kids program Friday through Sunday, designed to help them cope when a parent is deployed.

The camp will focus on science, engineering and technology themes and be held at the Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center in Pollock, according to Susan Riley, statewide coordinator for Operation Military Kids for Louisiana 4-H.
