2017 Boys and Girls Youth Conference Application 

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting its Annual Boys & Girls Youth Conferences on June 16th and 17th 2017.  The males will be housed at Chestnut Oaks Middle School located at 1200 Oswego Hwy., Sumter, SC; and the females will be housed at Crestwood High School located at 2000 Oswego Rd., Sumter, SC. 

The conferences are aimed at building character and leadership skills amongst boys and girls ages 10 to 18 years of age (if still in high school). Workshops and discussions include positive and negative effects of social media, drug resistance, abstinence, information technology, hygiene, career goal attainment and so much more.  Educating our youth is the key!!! 

Registration fee is $35 per camper. Registration will be 6:30 a.m. -8 a.m. Friday morning at Crestwood High School with various other activities scheduled throughout the day and evening. The campers will stay overnight and the conferences resume early Saturday morning. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. at Crestwood High School in the Auditorium, and the conferences will end at approximately 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Parents are encouraged to attend graduation.

Each camper should bring the following: bed covers and pillows, medications, female personal items, and personal hygiene items to include soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, wash cloths and towels. We will not be responsible for any lost electronics. Campers (boys & girls) may wear shorts, but the length should extend to the knees. Otherwise, shorts are prohibited. Females may wear skirts provided they are knee length or below. Cots will be provided, therefore sleeping bags are optional. Meals & snacks will be provided throughout the conferences as well, to include breakfast on Friday and Saturday mornings.

It is our mission to make our youth prosperous and productive citizens of the future. Applications may be picked up at the Sheriff’s Office, and for more information, contact: Lt.
