Your child can join Caddo deputies on the firing range this week for supervised firearms safety education and .22 rifle target shooting.

The Caddo Sheriff's Youth Firearms Education Camp kicked off Monday at the Sheriff's Regional Training Academy. 

Campers will also learn rural and urban survival skills, water safety and hands-on defensive techniques to protect against stranger abduction.

Each camp session takes place daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. through June 20. The camp is free and transportation is available if needed.

Applications for the Firearms Camp can be obtained on-line at or picked up at any Caddo Sheriff's Office substation, Caddo Correctional Center or Sheriff's Safety Town.
