Champions Camp for local kids kicks off

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A two-day children's summer camp hosted by the San Diego Sheriff's Department and the Hall of Champions kicked off Friday morning.

Fifty kids were selected for the program by schools and community service organizations.

Champions Camp is intended to promote communication, diversity, confidence and leadership among local middle-school kids.

"Hopefully you'll make some new friends, you'll learn how to set goals for yourself and you'll learn that you can accomplish things that maybe you thought you couldn't otherwise accomplish when you work with your partners, your team," said County Sheriff Bill Gore.

The Verizon Wireless Foundation is making this year's camp possible with a $10,000 donation.
