After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Shining Star Youth Camps are back in 2022. The dates for this year’s camps are June 15 - 17 at Magnolia School; June 22 - 24 at Fairhope Elementary East; July 20 - 22 at Belforest School; and July 27 - 29 at Central Baldwin Middle School.
Registration will open soon. Continue to check the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office social media pages for updates. The camps are designed for campers ages 8 - 12.
The first ever BCSO youth camp was held in 2009. It was designed to give community youth the opportunity to experience what public safety is all about. Campers are able to interact with public safety professionals in a fun, interactive environment, where they participate in activities that incorporate teamwork, physical fitness and safety tips.
Today, four camps are held each summer due to the popularity of the program.
According to the BCSO website, “The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office combines forces with other governmental and private agencies and organizations to teach about issues such as: drug and alcohol awareness, tobacco awareness, fire safety prevention, personal hygiene, seatbelt safety, marine and boater safety, life jacket awareness, wildlife safety, electricity safety, peer pressure and good character and decision making along with many other very critical issues which our youth need our help with.”
