ELLISTON – More than 30 incoming middle-school students are having fun and learning at Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Camp.

Helena police officers and deputies with the Lewis & Clark County Sheriff’s Office, along with a team of high schoolers, facilitate D.A.R.E. camp.

Deputy James Turpin is one of the facilitators. “We bring them to camp for two nights and three days where they participate in lots of team building events, lots of fun games.”

The abundance of activities available to the youngsters comes with learning valuable life lessons.

“When you’re young, you say, ‘Oh I’m not going to smoke.’ Just stay true to your word and that’ll happen,” Kinzlee Leeland said.

“You should get outdoors and that it’s really easy to make friends because if you just get along with people it’s easy I guess,” Micknley Hoffer added.

About another 30 to 40 children will attend session two of D.A.R.E. camp later in the week.
