Shining Star Camp
In 2009, the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office created its first ever summer camp for the youth of Baldwin County. This camp was designed to allow 8-12 year olds in Baldwin County the opportunity to experience firsthand what public safety is all about. Our three day camp not only teaches about the day-to-day operations at the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, but other agencies as well.
The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office combines forces with other governmental and private agencies and organizations to teach about issues such as drug and alcohol awareness, tobacco awareness, fire safety prevention, personal hygiene, seatbelt safety, marine and boater safety, life jacket awareness, wildlife safety, electricity safety, peer pressure, good character, decision making, and many other very critical issues that our youth need help with.
The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office Shining Star Camp helps to build life skills, instill confidence, and develop self-esteem. The curriculum includes a wide range of activities which incorporate teamwork, physical fitness, personal safety, and information about law enforcement and public safety careers. We emphasize the importance of physical and mental fitness and teach good citizenship. The Sheriff's Office strives to provide a positive learning experience for children during their summer break.
The goal of the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office Shining Star Camp is to provide your child with a fun and informative summer camp experience as well as to provide them with a wealth of knowledge about public safety that they will want to share with others for the rest of the summer!
