Sheriff’s Youth Summer Camp
As a father of 2 Currituck County graduates and as a Currituck County community stakeholder, I will continue to dedicate Sheriff Office resources in order to build positive relationships with our youth throughout the county. With our first year of the “Sheriff’s Summer Camp” a success, this program is scheduled to begin again this summer with the help of our school resource officers.
The first 2019 summer camp will be from Monday to Thursday, June 10-June 20, 2019. This camp will focus on 9th-12th grade high school students.
The second camp will be Monday to Friday, June 24-July 5, 2019. (no camp July 4th). This camp will focus on leadership and mentor development for a small group of high school aged students.
The third camp will be Monday to Thursday, July 8-July 18, 2019.. This camp will focus on 6th-8th grade middle school students.
The fourth camp will be Monday to Thursday, July 22- August 1, 2019.. This camp will focus on 6th-8th grade middle school students.
The fifth and final camp will be Monday to Thursday, August 5-August 15, 2019. This camp will focus on 6th-8th grade middle school students. At the end of each camp, we will have a recognition ceremony for all participants. Details about the ceremony will be provided at the beginning of each camp.
All Summer Camps will be hosted at the Currituck County High School in room A47 (Health Class). Summer camps will meet from 8:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m. Students can be dropped off at 7:50 a.m. and picked up at 4:00 p.m. at Currituck County High School. Lunch will be provided by the Currituck County Schools summer food nutrition program.

There’s a participant cap for each summer camp. High school and Middle school camp participants will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. School Resource Officers will contact school principals to identify recommended mentor camp candidates. Five camp seats will be reserved in each camp for referrals from North Carolina Juvenile Justice Court Counselors, JCPC program providers, Currituck County School Principals, and Currituck County School Resource Officers.
Students should apply for summer camp based on their current grade status at the time their application is submitted. For example, if your child is currently a student enrolled in middle school, please apply for a middle school aged summer camp. If your child is currently enrolled as a student at a high school or early college, please apply for the high school aged summer camp.
There is NO fee for your child to participate in the Sheriff’s Youth Club, Middle school or High school summer camps.
During the summer of 2019 our School Resource Officers and Mentors will be volunteering at the Currituck YMCA with their 3rd-5th grade summer camp from July 1 -July 5, 2019. Students K-5th grade can apply for the YMCA summer camp which is not free.

I look forward to serving you, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the Sheriff’s Office at 252-453-8204.
