LCSO and LC-CFRS Announce Dates for 34th Annual McGruff Safety Camps

McGruff 2022

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) and the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System (LC-CFRS) are proud to announce the 34th Annual McGruff Safety Camps. Due to scheduled school renovations, this year’s camps will be held at two different locations. The first camp will be held June 27 – June 30 at Countryside Elementary School in Sterling, VA. The second camp will be held July 11-July 14 and will also be held at Countryside Elementary School. The third camp will be held July 18 – July 21 at Pinebrook Elementary School in Aldie, VA.

The camp continues to offer morning and afternoon sessions. All camps run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. A graduation ceremony for all campers will be held on July 22, 2022 (location and time to be announced at a later date). 

The annual McGruff Safety Camp began in the summer of 1988 and has continued every year through a joint effort between the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System. The camps allow children who are entering kindergarten and first grade to learn about various topics on safety including fire safety, bicycle safety, and 911 emergencies. 

Throughout the week, children in the camp have the opportunity to meet law enforcement officers, firefighters, plus a chance to see law enforcement and fire/rescue vehicles firsthand.  Applications for the 34th Annual McGruff Safety Camps will be made available online Wednesday, April 13, 2022, at 9 a.m.at https://bit.ly/McGruffCamps.
