Junior Officer Summer Camp: Registration Begins

Summer camp aims to connect police with local youth.

The much-anticipated Junior Officer Summer Camp, a unique initiative designed to foster a positive relationship between the local police force and young members of the community, has announced its registration opening on April 1, 2024. This innovative camp aims not only to bridge the gap between police officers and youth but also to instill a sense of safety, respect, and mutual encouragement among participants.

Set to take place at Mitchell-Neilson Primary School, located at 1303 Jones Blvd, Murfreesboro, the camp is divided into two sessions based on the grade level of the participants. The first session, running from June 3 to June 7, is tailored for rising 3rd and 4th graders. The second session, scheduled for June 17 to June 21, is aimed at rising 5th and 6th graders. Each session is designed to accommodate up to 25 applicants, ensuring a focused and impactful experience for all involved.

At a cost of $50 per camper, the program is a joint effort by the MPD School Safety Division, Murfreesboro City Schools, and Murfreesboro Parks & Recreation. The curriculum is rich and varied, covering critical topics such as internet and phone safety, bicycle safety, and self-defense. Moreover, the camp emphasizes the importance of teamwork through various games and fun activities, providing a comprehensive and enjoyable learning experience.

Interested families are advised that the registration process requires access to a Google account, as the application form is hosted on Google Forms. This initiative reflects a collective commitment to nurturing a harmonious and mutually respectful relationship between the police force and the community’s youth, laying the groundwork for a safer and more inclusive Murfreesboro.
