SHERIFF ANNOUNCES "SHINING STAR CAMP"

The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the dates and locations for the 11th Annual Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Shining Star Youth Camps.


The 2019 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 that provides knowledge in a safe and fun environment.

Activities include drug awareness with K-9 demonstrations, crime scene investigations, firearms safety, fire safety, physical health information, bowling, obstacle courses, guest speakers, a family fun day, and many other activities.

This is a prime opportunity for our youth to learn from our law enforcement in an up-close and personal atmosphere while having fun!

Over the past 10 years we have had more than 2,500 kids come to our youth camps. Find a past camper and ask about our camp.

It doesn’t take long to see the smiles that come across their faces 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
Wednesday, June 12 through Friday June 14, 2019

Rockwell Elementary School, Spanish Fort:
Wednesday, July 10 through Friday July 12, 2019

Fairhope Intermediate School, Fairhope
Wednesday, July 17 through Friday July 19, 2019

Central Baldwin Middle School, Robertsdale
Wednesday, July 24 through Saturday July 27, 2019

(The Saturday is the family fun participation day for all campers that attended any of the camps.)

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 on that day.
