C.O.P.S. Young Adults Camp
July 26 - July 30
C.O.P.S. is moving forward with planning for the Hands-On Programs with hopes these events will take place in person in 2021. However, we continue to closely monitor restrictions due to COVID-19 that would impact retreats. Any decisions to cancel in-person events will be communicated to the C.O.P.S. membership. If you purchase airline tickets for any event, you should consider obtaining travel insurance.
C.O.P.S. Young Adults Camp is planned for surviving children and siblings (15-20 years of age) of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria. Other relatives and friends are not eligible to attend.
Growing up without a parent or older sibling role model can be challenging for young teenagers and adults. Young Adults Camp encourages independence, as it is the first step for surviving minor-aged children to attend a program without the presence of their parent/guardian. Young Adults Camp also allows a first look into C.O.P.S. Hands-On Programs for minor-aged siblings.
C.O.P.S. Young Adults Camp will give surviving children and siblings the opportunity to be surrounded by peers who understand, attend grief seminar sessions specifically designed for their needs, and participate in fun and challenging outdoor activities. This camp will be a mixture of enjoyable camp-like activities and a structured adult program, allowing surviving children and siblings to grow into young adults.
This camp is planned as an alternative program option to surviving minor-aged children and a new program option for surviving minor-aged siblings.
