Sedgwick County Sheriff's Law Camp
Sedgwick County Sheriff's Law Camp

 The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Law Camp, begun in 1994, has established itself   as one of the most successful young people related programs initiated in the area. The Crime Commission along with the Kansas National Guard, Big       Brothers and Big Sisters, Kansas Fish and Game, Koch Industries and a number of other organizations and agencies partner with the Sedgwick County Sheriff  in support of the annual event.

Each year, 60 mostly at risk young people  between the ages of 10 and 13, spend four days camping in Army  tents at Lake   Afton. The kids are divided into squads with two Sheriff’s deputies   assigned as  squad leaders. The campers participate in a variety of outdoor events  including swimming, boating, hiking, wall climbing and fishing.   


Each evening the youngsters, most of who have never camped out, gather  around a bonfire and hear messages about how  to avoid gangs, how drugs destroy lives and much more. Bonding between the young campers and their law enforcement mentors is a tremendous thing to observe. 


Thanks to the generous support of Koch Industries, Tom Devlin and several other Crime Commission members, embroidered T-Shirts and hats are provided  for the staff and campers. The kids are permitted to keep their shirts and hat and are encouraged to wear them in their neighborhoods. 


The Law Camp committee, has had great success in raising funds to permit the Commission to provide equipment used by the camp each year.  In 2008 the Law Camp committee was at the forefront of fundraising to purchase and construct a flag pole and monument, the first permanent structure to dedicate the site of Law Camp at Lake Afton.
