Sixth YMCA Northumberland Golf Camp Takes Place this Week

In Community

YMCA Northumberland and Cobourg Police Services partnered for the sixth year to bring golf to the youth in the community.

Running July 3 to 7, youth aged nine to 12 will join YMCA Camp staff and CPS members to learn the game of golf, build skills, and build bridges with police at the beautiful Cobourg Creek Golf
Course. YMCA Northumberland and Rebound Child & Youth Services Northumberland help provide access to the golf camp for youth across Northumberland County. In addition to learning new golf skills and participating in camp activities, campers will also have a day at the police station, a seminar on anti-bullying, and a Barbeque with CPS members.

“I look forward to getting on the green with the campers and building positive relationships.

YMCA Northumberland and the Cobourg Creek Golf Course continue to make this camp possible each year,” says Constable Jamie Baggaley. “Not only are some campers trying golf for the first
time, but we get to help foster positive relationships between the youth in our community and police. It’s going to be a great week.”

“We are very excited to be offering our full complement of YMCA camp programs this summer that include unique, fun and exciting opportunities and experiences for our youth. Participants
will make new friends, create new memories and interests that will last a lifetime. YMCA Golf Camp is an excellent example of community partners working together where our campers learn
new skills, remain active and receive mentoring through a program led by members of the Cobourg Police Service,” states Leanne Clarke, Manager Health, Fitness & Aquatics, YMCA

YMCA Northumberland thanks the Cobourg Police Services for their continued partnership and Cobourg Creek Golf Course for their generous support. Finally, thank you to Canadian Tire, Cobourg and Dairy Queen, Cobourg for providing prizes for the campers to ensure everyone has a special week.
