Register NOW to reserve your BRAG TAGS® designed for our summer youth activity program, Ready, Set, Play Covington! This year’s event will kick off at the Covington Chamber’s Health and Wellness Fair, sponsored by MultiCare, on Saturday, June 25 at the MultiCare Covington Medical Center. The program will run from June 25 through September 5, 2022. Kids and their families can visit member businesses, complete activities, and earn BRAG TAGS® while getting to know their community. After collecting tags at all participating businesses, participants will receive a special prize pack with amazing items including swim passes from the Covington Aquatic Center, a coupon for a free Crumbl Cookie, a $50 savings account from Red Canoe Credit Union, a pedometer from Valley Medical, a beach ball from Mary Bridge/MultiCare and more! 

Registration and payment are due by May 15, 2022, and the cost is $400 for new participating businesses. Contact us at info@covingtonchamber.org or 253-329-0999 for details and to see if your business is eligible to participate.

Why should my business participate?  This program will directly increase foot traffic to your business, you’ll provide socially safe activities for hundreds of kids in the Covington community, and you’ll help kids and their families get to know their community better.

Can ALL businesses participate? No. Ideally, your business is physically located in the Covington, Washington City Limits with a storefront and regular operating hours. In-home business or those with limited hours are not eligible to participate. If you are outside city limits, we have grandfathered in prior participants that are Covington Chamber of Commerce Members who have continued to be part of the program. We are making some exceptions to this rule if your business is centrally located. Contact us for details.

What is my responsibility in the program?  You are responsible for signing up/selecting a design, having a coordinating activity (provided with the tag), maintaining distribution of the tags, understanding the program, having regular operating hours OR, if not, have a plan for how to distribute the BRAG TAGS® to the children when closed. Never turn anyone away from the program but most of all HAVE FUN!

Who manages the program? This program is a collaboration with the City of Covington and the Covington Chamber of Commerce.  We also want to thank MultiCare Covington for the lanyard sponsorship and Red Canoe Credit Union, the Covington Aquatic Center, Crumbl Cookies, Valley Medical Center and MultiCare for providing goodies for the prize pack!
