Youngsters Enjoy Summer Day Camp “Harmony in the Streets”

“Harmony in the Streets” is a week-long day camp program
at locations within the community chosen specifically for
their proximity to low income neighborhoods. Camp counselors
partner with deputies in local law enforcement to
guide and nurture children through fun activities geared to
teaching self-respect, respect for others, anti-bullying and
leadership.
Throughout the week, the children were introduced to the
K-9 unit, the mounted posse, the 911 call center, among
other Sheriff ’s Office programs.
For generations, for poor and at-risk children, the Florida
Sheriffs Youth Ranches summer day camp has been a time
for escape to another world. More so than any other group,
summer camp leaves a lasting impression on children from
lower income neighborhoods. The introduction of law enforcement
as a friend and trusted ally, the guidance showing
them that doing the right thing can be both cool and fun –
all of the positive influence throughout the week provides a
moral uplift for the ones that need it most.
Thanks to Sheriff Ric Bradshaw and the Palm Beach Sheriff ’s
Office, law enforcement trust funds funded 14 week-long
sessions across the county this summer. Enabling this opportunity
for children that would otherwise not have access
is one small part of what the Sheriff ’s Office does for our
county.
To apply for next summer’s camp, please go to the PBSO
website for an application.
