Kops-N-Kids summer camp registration opens

By Niesha Lofing

Registration begins today for a summer camp program that teams Sacramento youth with area law enforcement.

The 23rd annual Kops-N-Kids camp provides children ages 9 through 13 with a week of sports, cheer and dance sessions with members of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

The camp also features gang resistance, drug awareness and violence prevention materials and activities, the organization's Web site states.

Cost of the camp is $25 per camper for the week. The fee was lowered last year, down from $35, in light of the economic downturn, states a news release by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a participating agency.

The number of hot meals served each day was increased last year, an action that will continue this year. Campers also receive T-shirts, gear bags and prizes throughout the week.

Scholarships are available for students who have participated in the national Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT) program.

Carmichael Elks Lodge, Maloof Entertainment, the Sacramento River Cats, Elk Grove Subway, Noah's Bagels, Wells Fargo Bank, the Target Corp., the Coca Cola Bottling Company and other businesses are helping support the camp program.

Free busing is available from certain locations in the San Juan, Rio Linda, Twin Rivers, Elk Grove and Sacramento City Unified school districts.

The camp will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 15 through June 19 at Rosemont High School, 9584 Kiefer Boulevard, Sacramento.
