Sheriffs' Summer Camp

It's all about the kids!

The Sheriffs' Summer Camp is One of the Institute's Most Important Activities

The Summer camp is for boys and girls 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. The camp is for economically challenged children.

Each County Sheriff is given a predetermined number of camper slots. Sheriff’s Offices use a variety of methods to identify deserving children to attend. The primary criteria is economically challenged children and children who can benefit with the positive interaction with deputy sheriffs.

Enjoy great stories and pictures about the kids' experiences and their interaction with sheriff's deputies from all over New York State.

Emergency Contact Info

In the case of a family emergency ONLY, you may contact the Camp Iroquois Nurse at (315) 536-2754, who will pass an urgent message along to your child. Please do not call in any other situation, as our 21 years of experience have taught us that phone calls from home impede our campers’ abilities to grow, learn and make friends.
