During the months of June and July, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office holds summer day camps for children 6 to 12 years of age. These sessions teach our young people about citizenship, leadership, cooperation, respect and environmental responsibility. Counselors and deputies reinforce the importance of rules and laws through games, team sports, crafts, and demonstrations. The Sheriff’s Office is presenting this program in partnership with Eckerd Youth Alternatives and The Florida Sheriffs Association. It is offered without cost to Hernando County children.
Summer is right around the corner, and the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office will again offer R.O.A.R. Summer Day Camps for Hernando County children, ages 6-12.
R.O.A.R. Summer Day Camp applications will be available on, Thursday, April 19, 2018.
The camp application can be found on the HCSO Internet website (www.hernandosheriff.org), located under Programs, Youth Programs, R.O.A.R. Summer Day Camps.
All sessions (at each location) will run from Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. R.O.A.R. Summer Day Camp is an action-packed, fun-filled week for kids, ages 6-12 years. It is FREE to the first 60 registered campers for each session. Preference will be given to Hernando County children who have NEVER attended R.O.A.R. Camp. Each child may only attend one week-long camp session.
