The GRACE (Gang Reduction through Active Community Engagement) Steering Committee announced Saturday it is kicking-off the second Virginia Rules Summer Camp next week.


The camp was created in part by GRACE and the Office of the Attorney General.


According to Albemarle County and Charlottesville police departments, the camp teaches middle school students from both the county and the city about the law and how to live by the law.


The goal of the camp is to prevent the growth of gangs in the Charlottesville area.


The camp runs from July 11 through July 15 and will be based at Murray High School.


But police say campers will be all over town, including touring the University of Virginia Athletic Facilities and hanging out at the ACAC water park.


Police say students will also get a chance to build their own computers and learn more about police through demonstrations and talks.


The camp is free for anyone interested in participating.


For enrollment details, contact the Charlottesville Police Department or the Albemarle County Police Department.
