CAMP JR SHERIFF provides a safe and positive environment for middle schooler’s in grades 6th – 8th to interact with peers, law enforcement officers and volunteers in a criminal justice setting. Our mission is to teach our youth the importance of discipline, self-respect, integrity, and teamwork. This will help them to become dynamic members of our community.
Our Camp will engage campers, both physically and mentally, through activities and presentations given by agency personnel, such as pushups, running, core stretching, relays, swimming, etc. Demonstrations will be given by the Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, Community Action Team, DARE and Special Operations Team.
