Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington is announcing the “Bossier Sheriff’s Youth Shooting Sports” summer camp for Bossier Parish students.

The free camp will be held at the Sheriff’s Shooting Complex in Plain Dealing. Students 10 -14 years old will go through the Louisiana Hunter’s Education Course to get their hunters certification by shooting BB Target Rifle, Archery, and a 20-gauge Shotgun. There is also a new, one-day camp to be held for students who already have their Hunters Education License.

“This is a great opportunity for our deputies to interact with the youth of the parish and to teach them how to properly handle a firearm,” said Sheriff Julian Whittington.

The dates for the three-day camps are May 31-June 2, June 7-9, June 21-23, June 28-30, July 5-7, July 12-14, July 19-21, July 26-28, and Aug 2-4. ­­­The one-day camps will be every Monday beginning June 6 and ending on Aug 1.

“As a former SRO, this is just another way I can give back to the community,” said Dep. James Lonadier will be heading up the youth summer camp.
