The War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Sum­mer Youth Camp start­ed in 2004 as a promise made by for­mer War­ren Coun­ty Sher­iff, Daniel McEathron for the youth of War­ren Coun­ty. This camp is pro­vid­ed for chil­dren who live in War­ren County/Front Roy­al. The camp is designed to build a more pos­i­tive rela­tion­ship between law enforce­ment offi­cers and the youth with­in the com­mu­ni­ty. With gen­er­ous dona­tions by local busi­ness­es and indi­vid­u­als, this camp is pro­vid­ed free of charge to the parents. 

The War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Camp runs for five con­sec­u­tive days. Campers and coun­selors stay overnight on site at the 4‑H Cen­ter locat­ed in Front Roy­al, VA. There is a wide vari­ety of activ­i­ties that campers and coun­selors par­tic­i­pate in, includ­ing canoe­ing on the Shenan­doah Riv­er, fish­ing at Isaak Wal­ton, and a chal­lenge course that builds con­fi­dence and teach­es team work skills. The atmos­phere is not only fun, it is also a learn­ing expe­ri­ence for the campers as well as the counselors.

The selec­tion process for the Sheriff’s Camp usu­al­ly starts around Jan­u­ary with appli­ca­tions being dis­trib­uted to all of the Ele­men­tary Schools along with the War­ren Coun­ty Mid­dle School. Area youth between the ages of 10 and 13 — or fifth to sev­enth grade — are invit­ed to go through the appli­ca­tion process in order to spend a week with deputies enjoy­ing activ­i­ties, games, and new friends.

If you have any ques­tions regard­ing the War­ren Coun­ty Sheriff’s Sum­mer Youth Camp, con­tact Deputy Cindy Burke | (540) 636‑5972 or Lt. Rob­bie Seal | (540) 635‑4128.
