MCSO’s 5th Annual Youth Adventure Camp approaching

Story Submitted

The Madison County Sheriff's Office will be holding their 5th Annual Youth Adventure Camp for 2016. They are planning on holding the camp from Friday, July 25 through Monday, July 29. The hours of the camp will be from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day.

As always, the vision for the summer camp is to share a sense of adventure with boys and girls between the ages of nine through 17 who may not have the opportunity to experience some of the activities offered otherwise. Madison County Sheriff's Office retired Captain Mark Joost will facilitate and instruct during the camp sessions along with other Sheriff’s Office Personnel. There will also be other State and Local Agency participation.

The camp will include faith based mini-leadership training sessions that encourage teamwork, structure, love and discipline. We are offering the camp to local kids who want to experience an array of different activities which will include swimming, kayaking, fishing, knot tying, rappelling, defensive tactics, confidence building courses, archery, firearms safety and marksmanship, compass reading, land navigation, emergency preparedness, and other life skills. We will also have demonstrations and hands on teaching by our Sheriff's Office and local Public Safety Partners which will include K-9 demonstrations and tracking, knife building, fire safety, wildlife familiarization and management.

These camps are free to participants and are funded in part through the Sheriff's Office Concealed Carry Class, private donors and business donations. Anyone wishing to sponsor a meal, activity or donate to the camp please contact the Madison County Sheriffs Office.

Parents or guardians wishing to inquire about the camp or other information please contact Tammy Webb and the Madison County Sheriff's Administrative Office at (850) 973-4151.
