What is R.O.A.R.?

R.O.A.R. stands for Respect Others And youRself and is a program offered 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.

R.O.A.R. Summer Day Camps are FREE to the first 60 registered campers for each session. Each child may only attend ONE, week long session.

All camps are now full.
