Due to the continuing concerns of COVID-19, the annual McGruff Safety Camps have been canceled this summer.
The LCSO, Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System, and Loudoun County Animal Services are working to develop the same safety lessons for children taught during the program to be presented virtually. The lessons will include fire safety, bicycle safety, and 911 emergencies. Children will also have an opportunity to virtually meet a deputy, firefighter, an animal services officer and see their equipment.
Please follow us on Facebook at @loudounsheriff and @loudounfire as we announce these upcoming virtual programs later this month.
About the Camps
The McGruff Safety camps are held every summer at several locations in Loudoun County.
The camps allow children who are entering kindergarten and first grade to learn various topics on safety including fire safety, bicycle safety, and 911 emergencies. Throughout the week children in the camp will have an opportunity to meet law enforcement officers, plus a chance to see law enforcement and fire/rescue vehicles firsthand.
The camps began back in the summer of 1988 and have continued every summer through a joint effort between the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and Loudoun County Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management.
Please check this site for updates for available dates and registration for the McGruff Safety Camps.
