Lee County Junior Deputy Camp inspires confidence

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

More than 100 youngsters and teenagers are gaining confidence and team building skills this summer at the fifth annual Lee County Junior Deputy Camp at the sheriff's office. 

"My favorite part of the camp is the obstacle course, I liked the wall," said Eli Walters.

"Just this whole camp is the most exciting thing ever," said Hailey Smith.

"The best part of the camp is building this rapport with our young people so when we go back into the schools they trust us and come tell us if something may be happening in our school which helps us keep it safe," said Corporal Pam Revels, Lee County Sheriff School Resource Officer. "We also do a lot of character building and talk about honor, pride, respect and team work." 

"We talk about honor and pride and  you always have to have pride," said Tanner Jennings.

"Even though nobody is looking, you still can do the right thing," said Lydia Green.

"You get to learn how to be a police officer and train," added MaKayla Gailick.

"We have an opportunity to reach out to our young people and so many of them face so many obstacles and we want them leaving here with self confidence so they don't fall onto the wrong path," added Cpl. Revels. 

Campers have to pay a small fee of $20 to participate, if a camper can't afford it Sheriff Jones makes sure they can attend. The rest of the money is paid for through the sheriff's office, so they are always looking for individual and business donations to keep this camp growing and going.
