The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue will hold the 33rd Annual McGruff Safety Camps at Evergreen Middle School in Leesburg from June 28 to July 22, according to a county announcement.
Officials said parents can register children to attend the program during one of three sessions: June 28 to July 1, July 12-15 and July 19-22. A virtual session will take place July 19-22 as well.
The McGruff Safety Camps began in 1988, allowing children entering kindergarten and first grade to learn about such topics as fire safety, bicycle safety and 9-1-1 emergencies.
Participants will also meet law enforcement officers, K-9 officers and firefighters and get to see law enforcement and fire-and-rescue vehicles up close and in person.
Each camp will run from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and 12:30 to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with one large, combined graduation ceremony at the end of the summer, officials told the Times-Mirror.
Applications for the camps will become available Wednesday at 9 a.m.
Those applications and more information are available at sheriff.loudoun.gov/4526/McGruff-Safety-Camps.
