Camp Thrive is held at the Hashawha Environmental Center annually in July. This free, overnight weekend camp, sponsored by the Carroll County Public Schools and The Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office, was designed for middle school students who have been or are currently impacted by addiction or addiction-related loss or trauma in their homes or with their loved ones.

Each year the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office plays a pivotal role in the planning and facilitation of Carroll County Camp COPS, a week-long day camp for local middle school students. The goal of the camp, which is structured like a “junior police academy”, is to help build positive and productive relationships between local children and the law enforcement professionals that serve our community. While participating in camp activities the children build self-confidence and learn about leadership and mutual respect – all while having a great time. The 2022 camp included around 100 campers and more than 20 staff members from law enforcement agencies around Carroll County – to include the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office.
A great time was had by all as they learned about various aspects of law enforcement, participated in many challenging team building activities, and had great fun making new friends. Despite the hot and humid weather, a good time was had by all. Thanks go out to all those who played a role in this year’s camp – for their hard work in making the 2022 session of Camp COPS a great success again this year!
