For registration or more information contact Sgt. Jimmie Ross, Jr. at 719-4713 or 723-3800 ext. 4713.
Parental transportation is needed to the Berkeley County Emergency Services Training Center (474 Reid Hill Road, just behind the Wal-Mart in Moncks Corner) for student drop-off and pick-up.
Check-in time for students is at 8:30 a.m. each morning of the camp and pick-up time is at 4:15 p.m. students lunch will be provided by Sheriff’s Office.
Bringing the community and Law Enforcement together as one family is the goal of the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office “Summer Deputy Camp.”
Each day will begin with the Pledge of Allegiance and a different theme for discussion.
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, Music “N” Motion, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Water Park and more.
There will be a lot of interaction between the students and Sheriff’s Deputies who will chaperon them throughout the weeklong camp.
