The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the dates and locations for the 9th Annual 2017 Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Shining Star Youth Camps. 

The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Shining Star Youth Camp is a program established to promote positive interaction between the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office and children between the ages of 8 and 13. The purpose of the program is to build life skills, instill confidence and develop self esteem. The curriculum includes a wide range of activities that will incorporate team work, physical fitness and general Sheriff’s Office information. This program is a cooperative effort by several public safety and public service agencies throughout Baldwin County, which provide knowledge in a safe and fun environment. 

Activities include drug awareness with K-9 demonstrations, crime scene investigations, boater’s safety with simulators, fire safety, physical health information, bowling, obstacle courses, guest speakers, a family fun day, and many other activities. This is the prime opportunity for our youth to learn from our law enforcement in a up close and personal atmosphere while having fun! Over the last 9 years we have had over 2500 kids come to our youth camps. Find a one time or repeat camper and ask about our camp. It doesn’t take long to see the smile come across their face with an eagerness to share an experience of something they learned. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE! 

The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Shining Star Camps will be held at the following locations: 

Magnolia School, Foley, Alabama: 

Wednesday, June 14 through Friday June 16, 2017 

Fairhope Intermediate School, Fairhope, Alabama: 

Wednesday, June 28 through Friday June 30, 2017 

Rockwell Elementary School, Spanish Fort, Alabama: 

Wednesday, July 12 through Friday July 14, 2017 

Central Baldwin Middle School, Robertsdale, Alabama: 

Wednesday, August 2 through Saturday August 5, 2017 (The Saturday is the family fun participation day for all campers that attended any of the camps combined.) 

The Camp staff is comprised of volunteers of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement and public safety participating agencies. The camp fee is $30.00 and includes camp shirts and activities. The only thing the camper is required to bring is a brown bag lunch for them each day with exception of the family fun day that will be held at the last camp at the Central Baldwin Middle School location. Each camper from all the camps and their families are invited for a free lunch and to enjoy the celebration event and activities highlighting YOUR Sheriff’s Office on that day….
