Sheriff's Summer Camp

Washington County Youth Bureau and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department work together to ensure that each year, several youth have an opportunity to participate in the Sheriff’s Summer Camp that is owned and operated by the New York State Sheriffs’ Association. 

The camp is located in the Finger Lakes region on Keuka Lake and serves youth between the ages of 9 and 12 who, because of economic reasons would not have an opportunity to attend a summer camp or enjoy a summer vacation. 

Some of the camp activities include:
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Bicycle Safety
  • Drug Awareness
  • Fire Demonstrations
  • Fishing
  • Kayaking
  • Snorkeling
  • Sports
  • Swimming
