The San Diego Sheriff’s Champions Camp is a two-day camp, held at the San Diego Hall of Champions (SDHOC), in partnership with the San Diego Sheriff’s Department. The camp serves 75 at-risk children throughout the SDSD’s service area and the focus of the camp is to build the character and self-esteem of young people in our community through inspirational and motivational messages utilizing several unique programs. We achieve this through interactive experiential learning to include physical, academic, and group activities. The program also helps to develop individual leadership skills and personal accountability by inviting individuals to return to future camps as mentors and leaders.
This year’s Sheriff’s Champions Camp, presented by Verizon and the San Diego Hall of Champions has partnered with the San Diego Zoo to add a special behind the scenes tour of the Zoo to the program. the Champions Camp has also partnered with Helm360 and Go VAVi to add even more activities to this year’s fun-filled camp. The San Diego Padres also donate to the program, giving each child the opportunity to attend a Padres game this season with their family and friends. The two-day camp also includes a Balboa Park-Wide scavenger hunt, also known as the “Champions Chase.” The San Diego Sheriff’s Departments’ very own Sheriff Gore is a wonderful supporter of this event along with several other motivation speakers each year.
