Kops-N-Kids Summer Camp

It's that time of year again.  Online registration is now open for the Kops-N-Kids summer camp program that teams Sacramento youth with local law enforcement. 

The 2012 Kops-N-Kids summer camp runs June 18-22 at Rosemont High School at 9594 Kiefer Blvd., Sacramento. The hours of camp are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p. m. on Friday.  The cost of the camp is only $32 for the entire week.  Busing is available from select local school districts. 

Kops-N-Kids is a non-profit organization that hosts a weeklong summer sports camp for children ages 9-13 in the Sacramento area.  Kops-N-Kids has provided this meaningful and enriching camp for 26 consecutive years.  The focus of the camp is to educate children about gang resistance, violence prevention, gun avoidance, and to promote positive choices.  Youth are given the opportunity for positive interaction with law enforcement and fire department role models.  

The kids experience sports clinics, learn about life skills and anger management.  Kops-N-Kids have added a new educational element addressing internet safety.

The Sacramento Police Department, in partnership with local law enforcement agencies, fire departments, businesses, civic and community organizations, takes extreme pride in this program that promotes confidence, courage and teamwork in our community's youth.

There are a limited number of spaces available.  Visit the website or register online at www.kopsnkids.com
