Sign Up for Sheriff’s Free Summer Camps
Back in 2004, he started a sports camp to help teach kids important character building skills. Sheriff McCabe later expanded the program to include even more summer youth camps.
The opportunity comes from the Sheriff Bob McCabe Foundation, and your donations. Deputies lead the camps, giving law enforcement a chance to build better relationships with children.
“The summer camps are great because they give kids a better chance of interacting positively with law enforcement. That way children are not afraid to come to us when they need help,” Norfolk Sheriff’s Office Deputy Eric Abshier said.
The one-week sports camp is set for June 22nd to June 26th 2015.
The free summer camps run July 6th through August 7th, for children ages 10-14 years old. Your kids can enjoy the activities at Camp Apasus Monday- Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and transportation pick up sites will be provided.
You must live in Norfolk to participate, and you can download registration forms for the summer camps and sports camp online.
More than 1,000 Norfolk middle school children have enjoyed the camps over the years, but the experience wouldn’t be possible without support from the community. We are asking local businesses to donate prizes that can be used as good incentives for children. We are also in need of volunteers to help at the camps. If you would like to get involved, contact Tammy Lindquist at (757) 441-1066.
