West Yorkshire Police run fun-packed summer camp for youngsters
7:00am Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
A fun-packed week awaits children at a West Yorkshire Police summer camp.
The camp has been running for five years and is a joint venture between Bradford College and the police.
When it started there were only 40 children, but at next week’s event, which runs from Monday to Friday at Trinity Campus on Trinity Road, about 500 youngsters are expected.
There will be a variety of activities, including climbing, first aid, laser quest, swimming, abseiling and a sports day. There will also be displays by the police and fire service.
A spokesman for the event said: “The aim is to reduce anti-social behaviour in Bradford and, year-on-year, this has been proven with statistics that show crime has reduced in Bradford.”
Events run from 9am until 4pm each day for children aged between nine and 15. It costs £10 per person for the week. To book a place, e-mail policesummercamp@ bradfordcollege.ac.uk.
