About our Camps:

The Norfolk Sheriff’s Office community outreach team leads the camps as a way to engage children in positive activities during the summertime, and show kids that they can trust law enforcement officers. The summer camps are held at Camp Apasus, off of Granby Street in Norfolk, and the sports camps take place at athletic facilities throughout the city.

During the sports camps, kids participate in a variety of sports, including baseball, football, and basketball. The children also learn how to set goals, and plan for their future. Sheriff Baron has teamed up with Norfolk State University and Old Dominion University to allow college athletes and coaches to speak with the kids about their careers, applying to colleges, and how playing sports can help them learn values like discipline and perseverance. The summer camps include a variety of activities like swimming, painting, canoeing, doing archery, and field trips to places like the Virginia Zoo.

The camps are conducted in partnership with Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, the Virginia Attorney General’s Office, ODU, NSU, Norfolk Parks and Recreation, Norfolk Police Department, the Norfolk Fire Department, and the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office. Norfolk Public Schools provides transportation and food for the kids.
