Camp Warriors & Before Care
Campers from New Dimensions Charter School Camp Warriors after school program were treated to a presentation by K-9 Officer Miller with the Morganton Public Safety Department and his partner, Echo.
Echo is a 2 year old, German Shepherd police K-9 who is from Hungary. Echo showed off many of his skills including his drug sniffing ability and shared with us his favorite thing in the whole world – his ball!
Officer Miller presented information to the campers regarding training that is required for both Echo and himself and allowed campers to try on different pieces of equipment used when training K-9 police dogs. Many campers were given the opportunity to pet Echo and show him some appreciation for all he is trained to do to keep us safe.
As we continue through the school year, Camp Warriors will be working to provide Morganton Public Safety K-9 Corps with much needed equipment through funds raised from fundraisers hosted by Camp Warriors. The selling of Valentine Candy Grams is just one way they are raising funds to help our K-9 friends. March will provide a Nifty Fifties Sock Hop, more information to come, that will also go towards our K-9 friends.
A great big Thank You to Officer Miller and Echo for an informative and fun event! And a big thank you to Mrs Sally, NDS Camp Warrior Director, for arranging this!
