LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

More than 90 campers from all over east Alabama became Lee County Junior Deputies on Friday after wrapping up a week of camp dedicated to fun and character building.       

Friday was Splash Day for campers.

The Beauregard Volunteer Fire Department used its fire trucks to make it rain so kids could have fun.

This is the fourth year for the camp, funded mainly by the sheriff's office and run by school resource officers.

Families are asked to help out by paying $20 for the camp, but if families can't afford it no camper is ever turned away.

"Character building is so important to us, these kids are at school and there is so much negativity thrown at them and they have to learn to be strong and say no," said Cpl. Pam Revells, Lee County School Resource Officer.

School resource officers help mentor the kids during the school year and into the summer by hosting camps and self-defense classes.
