Cops, day camps come together for friendly competition
MONTCO » Campers, counselors, and cops enjoyed fun in the sun Thursday at the annual showdown between the Whitemarsh Cop Camp and the Miles Park Day Camp.
For the past 12 years, the cop camp, which is now in its 19th year, has challenged the day camp, run by the Whitemarsh Township Department of Parks and Recreation, to a water balloon fight and inflatable obstacle course races for friendly early summer bragging rights. A cookout and impromptu dodge ball games followed the contests.
The counselors and cops also go head-to-head on the obstacle course, with the winners — this years it was the cops — taking home a trophy.
