The summer camping program at the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys & Girls Ranch officially opened to campers for their 43rd camping season on Sunday, June 10. The camp runs throughout June and July, serving both boys and girls alternating weeks.

The Boys & Girls Ranch is a non-profit organization serving Kentucky’s youth through a camping program designed to build their self-esteem, while teaching them respect for themselves, others and law enforcement professionals. The camp is free to the campers thanks to the dedication and support of sheriffs, members and contributors. The cost of serving the children is about $500 per week per child.
