Today marked the end our 2021 Danville Police & Fire Summer Camp. 30 campers, aged 9-13, spent three full days with our public safety agencies, learning in detail exactly what we do each day.
Following these fun and informative activities, our campers participated in a graduation ceremony in Bosstick Gym, commemorating the 2021 Danville Police & Fire Summer Camp class. During the ceremony, Danville Town Manager, Mark Morgan, addressed the graduates.
Chief of Police Jim Hilton and Fire Chief Rob Roberts also addressed the campers and presented them with their certificates of completion and camp Challenge Coins.
The campers then participated in an Water Ball competition to end the camp. This game involves four fire hoses and a large ball suspended in the air by a cable. It is best described as tug-of-war, using fire hoses. It’s was more fun than we could have ever expected!
This camp was amazing! We love interacting with our youth and this was the best opportunity to do just that.
We would like to thank our sponsors for making this possible! Without them, we could not have done anything close to what we put together.Danville Police and Fire Camp Sponsors:
