Harmony in the Streets Day Camp June 16-20

Live Oak —

The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is providing a free weeklong day camp that allows children to participate in various outdoor activities and develop positive esteem. “Harmony in the Streets” is a community program for boys and girls that emphasizes respect for others and promotes healthy relationships with local law enforcement officers.

The Harmony in the Streets day camp will be held June 16-20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Branford High School. A maximum number of 60 children can participate in the program. Funding for this local program is provided by dedicated individuals, community based groups, and a strong commitment from Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron.

The five day camp is action packed with water activities, workshops, archery, snacks, team sports, games, group building exercises, law enforcement demonstrations and more. 

The mission of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to prevent juvenile delinquency and develop lawful, productive citizens through a broad range of family-centered services.  Since 1957, the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches has served thousands of boys, girls, and their families.

This charitable, nonprofit corporation was founded by the Florida Sheriffs Association and operates four residential child-care campuses and two Youth Camps. Additionally, it provides community-based services and family counseling to as many of Florida’s neglected, troubled children as funds will permit. Voluntary contributions are the primary source of funding, especially thoughtful gifts made through special bequests in wills and trusts.

The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, Inc. is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children, Inc. and the American Camp Association. For more information, please visit www.youthranches.org or contact Sheriff Cameron at 386-362-2222.
