Here’s a ‘law-themed’ summer camp for teens

HAMPTON — Registration is now open for the Virginia Rules Camp, a statewide, law-themed summer day-camp for students in grades 6 through 8.

Organizers say the camp offers participants a “fun and healthy week” learning about Virginia laws and building positive relationships with law enforcement officers in their community.

Sponsored by Hampton Police, the Parks, Recreation & Leisure Services Department and the Office of Youth and Young Adult Opportunities — along with a number of others — Virginia Rules has room for 50 students from Hampton.

The registration form for the Virginia Rules Camp is available online.

Once filled out it should be mailed or hand-delivered to the Fort Monroe Community Center, 100 Stilwell Road.

For information, contact Senior Police Officer E. Williams by email or by calling 757-727-6831 or 757-810-6683.
