Washington County Virginia Sheriff's Office

WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE CONDUCTS its 2nd ANNUAL VIRGINIA RULES CAMP With the support of the Washington County Schools and the Office of the Attorney General, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office held a free camp for kids during the week of June 4 through June 8 and June 22 through June 28, 2018. According to Washington County Sheriff Fred Newman, the Virginia Rules Camp was a law-themed summer camp for Washington County rising 6th graders. Along with a week of summer fun, the camp provided a positive and productive way for the youth participants to spend a week of their summer break. In addition to learning about Virginia laws concerning bullying, responsibility and technology as it relates to them, campers had the opportunity to participate in activities such as bowling, putt-putt golf, kayaking with Adventure Mendota and a tour of Bristol Caverns. They were also treated to demonstrations by several law enforcement, fire, K-9, Tactical Team, Wings and EMS teams. “By educating our youth about Virginia laws and how it affects them, we believe the kids will be able to develop skills to recognize the consequences of their life choices and actions,” stated Sheriff Fred Newman. Attendance averaged was around 50 campers each day for both weeks. The kids were tested before the camp regarding their knowledge of Virginia laws and again at the end of the camp. After the camp, the test scores were above 90%! This indicates that while the kids were enjoying their week, they were also listening to the instructors and learning how to be more responsible in their actions. “The kids who participated and their parents have given us feedback indicating the camp was a huge success, and have recommended that this camp be an annual event for our rising 6th graders,” stated Sheriff Newman. School Resource Officers and others who worked with the kids these weeks were: Lt. Blaine Tate, Sgt. Robbie Cruise, Master Deputy Brandon Owens, Deputy Billy Nichols, Deputy Cody Johnson, Deputy Adam Rhudy, Deputy Darrell Dickenson, Officer Aaron Hagy Detective Brandon Tweed and Chris Sullivan Senior Area Forester. Job well done, gentlemen! Special thanks to Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Wilson both teachers from Abingdon Elementary and also Amy Duncan the assistant coordinator with Attorney General’s Office. We would also like to thank parents from Abingdon Elementary and Meadowview Elementary, Food City, Abingdon Cinemall, Dairy Queen, Chick-Fil-A and all the private donor’s that made donations to help with this camp.
