During the months of June and July,
the Sheriff's Office holds summer day camps for children 6 to 12 years of age. These sessions
teach our young people about citizenship, leadership, cooperation, respect and environmental responsibility.
Counselors and deputies reinforce the importance of rules and laws through games, team sports, crafts
and demonstrations. The Sheriff's Office is presenting this program in partnership with Eckerd
Youth Alternatives and The Florida Sheriffs Association. It is offered without cost to
Hernando County children.
