This Saturday, the 2014 Ontario Provincial Police Cop Camp participants will be washing cars to raise money for charity.

This year’s Cop Camp involves 90 youths, aged 11 and 12, who reside within OPP policed areas of Essex County. Those students chosen have graduated from the Grade 6 Values, Influences and Peers (VIP) program, from schools within our communities. Each summer they are brought together for a week of teamwork and leadership building, socializing and positive exposure to police officers along with camping fun.

One of the themes of Cop Camp is “Pay It Forward”, where students are encouraged to consistently give back to their communities by volunteering, or doing kind things in general.

Money raised through the car wash, will be donated by the campers to the John McGivney Children’s Centre to purchase equipment for other children.

The event will take place at the Puce Fire Hall at 1031 Essex County Road 22 in Lakeshore as well as the Essex Fire Hall at 55 Alice Street in Essex from 10am to 1pm.
