The Elgin Police Department Resident Officers are pleased to announce it is hosting our 11th Annual ROPE Summer Camp from June 8th-10th at the Snake Road Adventure Center in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. This year the Officers chose 31 kids, ranging from ages 9-12, selected from their ROPE areas, based on leadership potential, family need, and the belief that the child could benefit from this camp.
Leadership and team skills are stressed throughout camp. In addition, the children will participate in fun traditional camp activities such as swimming, hiking, campfires, archery,
and canoeing. The purpose of the camp is to challenge each child and give them
confidence to believe in themselves.
Being that some of these children are at-risk, this camp will afford them the opportunity to develop skills to help them make better choices in life. For most of the kids this will be the first time they leave the Elgin area and experience a new world outside their own
Media and photographers are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact ROPE Officer Marcy Kogut at 847-354-3388.
