On Thursday, March 28, 201, Essex County OPP officers, civilian employees and volunteers will be packing groceries to help support the Annual Essex County OPP Cop Camp.

Essex County OPP Officers will be packing groceries at the Real Canadian Superstore in Leamington, Zehrs stores in Tecumseh and Kingsville and at Foodland in Essex from 9am to 9pm.

The Essex County OPP Cop Camp exists solely by the generous contributions and donations from the public.

Cop Camp is an annual event involving 90 students from elementary schools across Essex County (Essex, Kingsville, Lakeshore, Leamington, Pelee Island and Tecumseh) who attend and benefit from a week of directed and supervised activities. They will be taught the importance of teamwork along with other positive life skills.

They will be given guidance by police officers, civilians, auxiliary members and other caring, trained volunteers. These youths are recent graduates of the VIP program (Values, Influences and Peers) and are selected by their individual schools to attend the Camp.
