CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - Building relationships with children in the community. That's the goal of the very first Hero's Camp that will be held in Clark County this summer.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office is inviting children in third to eighth grade to participate in the day camp.

Kids will get a chance to learn about law enforcement and interact with officers through different activities and teamwork exercises.

Clark County Sheriff Jamey Noel said the camp is a great way to reach out to students. 

"It makes our job a lot easier when you are interviewing witnesses, when you have that trust factor when they get older - whether it be a crash or a criminal case. But it's also really important for the kids to get that bonding experience with us to know that they can trust us, that we are people just like them and that we care about them," he said.

The free camp starts on June 13.

Those who want to sign up for the program can do so at the Clark County Sheriff's Office.
