Camp POSTCARD (Peace Officers Striving To Create and Reinforce Dreams)
Camp POSTCARD is a free week-long summer camp designed to benefit 5th and 6th graders from the Denver/Aurora metro area who demonstrate leadership skills and might not otherwise be able to afford such an experience. For many of our youth, this represents their first camp experience. This popular and successful Volunteers of America program has proven to be an important opportunity to build strong, positive adult/youth relationships and valuable life skills that serve the campers, their families, and their communities.
Camp POSTCARD establishes positive bonds between the youth and their adult counselors, which are law enforcement personnel. The experience provides a safe environment that stresses appropriate role models, ideals and values from the lessons of the Be Somebody curriculum. Campers learn the importance of self-respect and respect for others, teamwork, self-control, and dignity.
Throughout the week, a variety of planned activities help youth build self-esteem, leadership skills, and decision-making skills. The schedule includes a number of specialized team-building activities and events. Youth also take part in activities such as archery, arts & crafts, hiking, horseback riding, and police demonstrations. Through this safe and positive environment, memories are created that last a lifetime.
