Kids and Cops Camp

The Winchester Police Department Kids and Cops is a week-long camp designed to provide nearly 100 local children ages 9-12 with the opportunity to learn about law enforcement and teamwork, form friendships, and have a positive experience. Since its implementation in 2001, the camp has been a great success! This would not have been possible without the support and donations of our sponsors.

 

In addition to our annual kickball tournament, the children participate in law enforcement demonstrations and competitions. We also participate in a community service project so the campers learn the importance of giving back to the community.
