GILBERTSVILLE – Sheriffs and Deputies across the state kicked off the 2009 camping season at the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch on Sunday, June 7. Boys and girls across the state are in for a real treat and a week of fun and learning. The Ranch offers an eight-week camping program designed to build self-esteem, moral character and to teach respect for self, other sand law enforcement professionals. The camp alternates boys one week and girls the next, throughout the 8-week period, with the last week being July 26-31, 2009.

According to Ranch Director Jerry Wagner, “No fee is charged to the children attending as we rely on memberships, individual and corporate donations, along with fundraisers sponsored by various Sheriffs, to supply the needs. Over 30,000 youth have now received a free weeks’ summer camp experience thanks to the programs offered by the Boys and Girls Ranch. The continued support of Kentucky’s citizens, businesses and organizations greatly needed and deeply appreciated.”

Fun and excitement await the campers and we hope to give each child a week full of memories! We have gifts for each child to bring home, lots of programs and activities (arts and crafts, swimming, nature programs, sports, pony rides, etc.) to ensure their fun and learning while at camp. Activities and programs this year are designed to teach the children respect for themselves and others… thus, our theme: R-E-S-P-E-C-T…Have a bundle, give a bundle.”
