Cops and Campers Youth Summer Camp
The Sachse Police Department is excited to offer the opportunity for your child to apply for and attend the Cops and Campers youth summer camp.
Cops and Campers youth summer camp is FREE to all students selected and includes activities and games as well as age appropriate lessons. Each weekly camp will also feature a field trip. The camps are run by the School Resource Officers from the Sachse Police Department in conjunction with select high school students and adult volunteers.
The Cops and Campers summer camp will be offered over 3 separate weeks. The hours of operation for each camp will be 8:00 am until 12:00 pm for Elementary Students, and 8:00 am until 3 p.m. for Middle School Students. Both Elementary and Middle School camps will be from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm on Fridays. Please note we can only accommodate 40 campers per camp.
You many choose one camp to attend and one alternate choice in the event your first selection is not available. Middle School Campers will be required to bring a sack lunch each day. All campers are urged to bring their own water bottles each day. If you do not receive an email or phone call from the Sachse Police Department stating the date your child will attend camp this means spaces were filled by other students whose information was turned in first.
Students who are current 9th through 11th graders at Sachse High School and PTA members may volunteer to assist with the camps. Those approved to volunteer can choose which week(s) they want to assist but we cannot guarantee which camp you will be assigned to.
Volunteers can earn up to 40 hours each week. These hours are awarded to the recipient in the form of a letter from the Sachse Police Department with the total number of hours volunteered. The hours can be used at Sachse High School for club membership as well as on college admission resumes. There is a maximum of 160 hours available per volunteer.
Volunteers will assist with the following duties:
- Checking campers in and out of camp
- Setting up activities
- Leading activities
- Cleaning up after camp (this may include restrooms)
- Helping serve meals if provided
- Chaperoning campers on field trips
- Any tasks which may arise during the course of camp
Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp. However, they will ride with staff and campers on field trips. Volunteers will provide their own lunch unless otherwise instructed.
Volunteer forms are now available.
