The summer camping program at the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch officially opened to campers for the 46th season on June 14. Needless to say, after a summer off because of COVID, it was excited to be back up and serving. The camp runs throughout June and July, serving both boys and girls alternating weeks, throughout the camp season.
The Boys and Girls Ranch is a non-profit organization, serving Kentucky’s youth through a camping program designed to build their self-esteem, while teaching them respect for themselves, others and law enforcement professionals. The camp is free to the campers, thanks to the dedication and support sheriffs, members and contributors. The cost of serving the children costs about $500 per week per child. With continued donations and support from contributors, it will continue reaching Kentucky’s youth. All donations directly benefit the camp.
Boys in attendance the week of June 14 were from Clark, Daviess, Hardin, Marion, Montgomery, Ohio Owen, Trigg and Warren counties.
