Summer Youth Program

Law Enforcement Summer Youth Program 2023

Dear Friends: 

Beginning June 13, 2023, Fredericksburg Police Department will be hosting our 29th LAW ENFORCEMENT SUMMER YOUTH PROGRAM. This program is for every child between the ages of 7 and 14 and will consist of activities such as swimming, archery, fishing, rocket building/launches and more throughout the summer. Snacks will be provided at each event, and there is never a cost to any child attending. 

The SUMMER YOUTH PROGRAM will meet weekly on either Mondays or Tuesdays, generally between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. The particular day and time will depend on the type of event we have scheduled for that week. A link to our 2023 Summer Schedule is available below, along with links to a list of Rules and Regulations, a Release of Liability Form, and our first event Permission Slip. Please take a moment to read through these forms. 

Our program is supported entirely through donations of time. Parents, we'd love to have you come along with us. 

If you have any questions about our program or you would be interested in helping, please call 997-7585 for Lt. Braxton Roemer, Danielle, or Yvonne. 

We look forward to sharing some summer activities with you and giving our children a chance to get to know our officers. Come enjoy the fun!

What is Required to Participate

We require each child to have a Release of Liability Form on file, this form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. The form releases, all claims of liability or responsibility for an injury received by the child or damage suffered by the child as a result of the child's participation in the program. The parent agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the City of Fredericksburg, the Fredericksburg Police Department, City personnel and/or any volunteer workers for any such damage or personal injury that the child may suffer as a result of their child's participation in the Summer Youth Program. This form also alerts staff of allergies, and any special needs of each child.

Each week a child must bring a Permission Slip that corresponds with the activity. The permission slip will have the date, time, place and information pertaining to the event of the week. This form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and turned in when the child is dropped off. A new permission slip will be given to the parent when the event is over.
