On Monday, 6/11/12 at 8:30 a.m. 72 children from various parts of the county will board the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch Camp bus and head to Inglis, Florida for a five day camping trip.
This is a voluntary program whose goals are to provide campers with opportunities to try new activities, learn new skills and make new friends.
Nine deputies will spend the week with 36 boys and 36 girls attending the camp to allow campers to interact with law enforcement in a positive manner. The camp also teaches children valuable teamwork skills through group living, group decision making and group building activities.
The camp was filled on a first come first serve basis and was open to all boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 15 years of age. There is no charge to the families for their child to attend the camp.
School Resource and Community Policing Deputies worked to provide applications to students in their schools as well as families in their respective work areas.
