June 11, 2018

Planning is currently underway for Character Camp 2018, which is hosted and sponsored by the Gaines County Community Resource Group.  

This year, the camp is scheduled for July 17-19 and marks the 20th year of the camp, which is open to Gaines County youth ages 11-15 at no cost to them.  

This year, the GCCRG camp will be held at the Seminole Junior High School campus, located in the 600 block of N.W. Ave. J.

The camp provides an opportunity for youth to develop good character and problem solving skills while having fun.  

The camp is based on the six pillars of character: Respect, Caring, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Citizenship and Fairness.  Youth will also participate in a sports tournament, low ropes activities and Redneck Olympics which includes shaving cream and water balloons.  

Breakfast and lunch is provided each day of the camp.  

The camp ends with a hamburger and awards ceremony.
