The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office will host its annual BCSO Summer Deputy Camp for students 8 to 12 years old this summer.
Camp dates are July 15 through July 19. Participation is limited to the first 50 students who return a completed parental consent and registration form along with a check or money order for $75 made payable to the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Crime Prevention Unit.
For registration or more information contact Sgt. Jimmie Ross, Jr. at 719-4713 or 723-3800 ext. 4713.
Parental transportation is required to the Berkeley County Emergency Services Training Center (474 Reid Hill Road, just behind the Walmart in Moncks Corner) for student drop-off and pick-up. Check-in time is 8:30 a.m. each morning of the camp and pick-up time is at 4:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided at the camp.
Bringing the community and Law Enforcement together as one family is the goal of the camp.
Some of the exciting activities include a hands-on forensics program, DNR hunting and fishing simulator, Special Response Team and K-9 demonstrations, basic first aid, fire department demonstration, a field trip to Music “N” Motion, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Water Park and more. There will be interaction between the students and sheriff’s deputies who will chaperone them throughout the weeklong camp.
