The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is once again offering its Deputy Day Camp this year on August 13.
Deputy Day Camp is designed to give kids age 6-12 the opportunity to immerse themselves in the work of a Deputy Sheriff. To accommodate as many kids as possible, morning and afternoon sessions will be offered.
Each session will include crime scene investigation, squirt gun range with firearms safety, tours of SWAT and Incident Command vehicles, photo station in official DCSO gear, simulated traffic stops, DCSO Search and Rescue equipment, and an exciting K9 demonstration.
Deputy Day Camp will be held at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office public safety campus located at 63333 Highway 20 West.
Deputy Day Camp times are 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Parents are asked to remain on site and bring any snacks or drinks for their kids. No pre-registration is required. Kids only need to show up, have fun, and become a Junior Deputy Sheriff. Spanish speaking services will be available during this event.
