East Troy camp provides support for kids of fallen officers
EAST TROY There’s some solace in sharing a bad experience with someone else—especially for kids.
Providing a place to talk with others is the purpose behind the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) Kids Summer Camp, according to a story in the Racine Journal Times.
Camp Edwards in East Troy has been running the week-long summer camp for several years. The program is focused on 6- to 14-year old children whose parent was killed in action. It is run by Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Conservation Wardens and area officers who serve as volunteers.
Kids get a chance to talk about what it’s like to grow up without a parent with others who understand the experience. They also can relax in an outdoors setting.
