FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The James City County Police Department completed its first Community Outreach Program (COP) summer day-camp for kids ages 10-13 during the week of July 8-12. Nineteen kids participated and received certificates for completing the program. The COP camp included teaming kids with officer/mentors who spent the week completing lessons about volunteering and becoming active in the community while participating in fun team building and educational activities.
The group attended Go Ape!, completed a “drive” for items to be donated to Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center and also visited the Center, participated in a “Blazin’ Wing Challenge” hosted by Buffalo Wild Wings, and visited the Eco Discovery Park. The Department would like to thank its partners who provided donations and helped to sponsor the program.
