Pamlico County Sheriff’s Office Planning Summer Camp
Sheriff Chris Davis
This summer, The Pamlico County Sheriff’s Office is planning to begin a new program geared at helping our youth in Pamlico County. We understand that our youth are this community’s greatest asset and want to ensure that we do all we can in making sure these young folks succeed in life. This summer we are planning to start a summer camp for our youth. This camp will last a week and we plan to run as many week-long sessions as we have kids sign up for. Each session we would like to have between 10-15 kids and will be chaperoned by our (2) school resource officers as they tour Eastern North Carolina. During the week, these kids will spend time learning about the sheriff’s office, our court system, meeting local government officials, touring the nature center in Kinston, the state park in Atlantic Beach and many other places of interest in Eastern North Carolina. Our goal is to reach 60-100 8-12-year-old Pamlico County children this summer.
Not only do we believe this program will keep kids out of trouble during the summer, we also want to build strong relationships between law enforcement and our youth. We believe that we can continue to build off the relationships we have started over the last several years. My staff and I spend countless hours in our schools each year, teaching our youth about making good decisions. We believe that if we start with our youth, we will progress in making our communities and schools a safer place.
As you may know, this program is not funded by local government tax dollars. We are reaching out to you today and asking for donations to help us, help our youth. We project the cost to run this program each summer at around $10,000.00, per summer. Each day we will have to provide these kids with transportation and meals, purchase needed tickets to enter the events the group will attend and purchase each kid a t-shirt at the completion of the camp.
Over the next month, we will be reaching out to local businesses and community leaders to ask for sponsors for the “Sheriff’s Summer Camp.” Each sponsor will have their company name/logo and/or donors name on the t-shirt that each kid will receive. The cost to become a sponsor of the summer camp is $500.00; however, we would gladly except any donation possible.
I would like to thank you for your support of this great program and would like to thank you for helping us, help our youth. If you have any questions, I ask that you contact me at (252)745-3101, or by email, email@example.com.
