Madison County Sheriff's Office Summer Camp
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office would like to announce the 5th Annual Youth Adventure Camp for 2016. We are planning on holding the camp during the week of July 25th through July 29th. The hours of camp will be from 8:00AM until 6:00PM each day.
As always the vision for the summer camp is to share a sense of adventure with boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 17 who may not have the opportunity to experience some of the activities offered. Madison County Sheriff’s Office Retired Captain Mark Joost will facilitate and instruct during the camp sessions along with other Sheriff’s Office Personnel. There will also be other State and Local Agency participation.
The camp will include faith-based mini-leadership training sessions that encourage teamwork, structure, love and discipline. We are offering the camp to local kids who want to experience an array of different activities which will include swimming, kayaking, fishing, knot tying, rappelling, defensive tactics, confidence building courses, archery, firearms safety and marksmanship, compass reading, land navigation, emergency preparedness, and other life skills. We will also have demonstrations and hands-on teaching by our Sheriff’s Office and local Public Safety Partners which will include K-9 demonstrations and tracking, knife building, fire safety, wildlife familiarization, and management.
These camps are free to participants and are funded in part through the Sheriff’s Office Concealed Carry Class, private, and business donations. Anyone wishing to sponsor a meal, activity, or donate to the camp please contact the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.
Parents or guardians wishing to inquire about the camp or other information please contact Tammy Webb and the Madison County Sheriff’s Administrative Office, 850-973-4151.
