Holiday fun for youngsters at West Yorkshire Police summer camp
8:00am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
Bradford youngsters have been having fun at this year’s West Yorkshire Police summer camp.
West Yorkshire Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Isabel Owen was on hand to meet the children and staff enjoying the camp, at Bradford College.
Two weeks of activities have been lined up for around 500 nine to 15-year-olds, including sports sessions, rock climbing and abseiling.
There is also cooking with Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food, dance sessions and the chance to engage with police officers and other emergency services.
Police Community Support Officer Chris Cahill, who organised the camp, said: “We believe this year's summer camp will be the best yet. It is important to give young people something to do during the summer holidays, as low level crime and anti-social behaviour can tend to peak during these extended periods.”
