This Thursday, Essex County OPP officers, civilian employees and volunteers will be packing groceries to help support the 21st Annual Essex County OPP Cop Camp.

Cop Camp is an annual event, in its 21st year, involving 90 students from elementary schools across Essex County (Essex, Kingsville, Lakeshore, Leamington, Pelee Island, Harrow 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 at no cost to them.

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

They will be at the following Essex County grocery at the Real Canadian Superstore in Leamington, Zehrs in Tecumseh and Kingsville, and Foodland in Essex from 9am to 9pm. They will be at Tetreault’s Valu-Mart in Belle River 11am to 8pm.
