The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office summer sports camps are designed to bring the community and law enforcement officers together to instruct children and teenagers in the community.
In 2012, the Sheriff’s Office offered a football camp and a baseball camp at no cost to participants. In 2013, 2014 and 2015 we are offering a football camp, soccer camp and a baseball/softball camp, again at no cost.
Funds are raised to support this program through the Annual Scott H. Jenkins Youth Sports Benefit Basketball Game between local law enforcement and local school staff. Monetary donations were also made by Med Express, M.D. Russell Construction and Eastern View Athletic Boosters.
In each camp the basic fundamentals of each sport are taught to children aged 5 to 16. Each player will have the opportunity to learn new skills and to improve existing skills. There is a strong emphasis on sportsmanship, respect, and teamwork. The goal for each camp is to have participants use lessons related to good sportsmanship and respect on the field and in their everyday lives as they continue to grow and mature.
