On Saturday, June 4, 2016, the 2016 OPP Cop Camp participants will be washing cars to raise money for charity.
This year’s Cop Camp involves 70 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 Windsor Essex County Youth Diversion to go towards programming.
The event will take place at the Tecumseh Fire Hall located at 975 Lesperance Road as well as at the Kingsville Fire Hall located at 1720 Division Road from 10am to 1pm.
