Summer Youth Program
Tuesdays starting in June and lasting for six weeks, children between the ages of 7 and 14 participate in activities such as Movies, Swimming, Fishing, Field Trips and much more. The program began in 1993 and many parents who participated in the program as a child are bringing their children to continue the tradition.
The Law Enforcement Summer Youth Program is operated by the Fredericksburg Police Department with staffing help from the Fredericksburg Volunteers in Police Support. Parents are also welcome to participate in the program.
Questions about the Program can be directed to Braxton Roemer, Yvonne Alberthal, Danielle Woolverton or Leian Peterson by calling The Law Enforcement Center 830-997-7585
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.
