Camp POSTCARD

(“Police Officers Striving to

Create and Reinforce Dreams”)

inspiring young people since 1994

Camp POSTCARD celebrated its 25th birthday in 2018!

Camp POSTCARD (Police Officers Striving To Create And Reinforce Dreams) is a free week-long program for Maine kids. Counselors are volunteer Police Officers from across Maine. Sheriffs, Troopers and Municipal Officers all come together to mentor and encourage kids while improving their perceptions of law enforcement.

In 2017, 163 children from all 16 Maine counties attended Camp POSTCARD, giving them a week of exploration, healthy activities, outdoor recreation, and education. Campers adjust to new places and people – all while being mentored and cared for by officers of Maine law enforcement and public safety organizations.

Over 55 officers (current and retired) spend the week 24/7 at Camp POSTCARD; Many have been Camp POSTCARD leaders for 5,10, 15, even 20 years. Their goal is to give children an experience that will enrich their lives and give them hope for the future. During this week, campers experience officers as caring and fun-loving people primarily concerned with the well-being of children.

Camp POSTCARD gives children a new perspective on what’s possible for them to achieve; the adults who are providing these many experiences and cheering them on are officers and many other caring adults. Camp POSTCARD gives children a boost to their confidence; they broaden their horizons and have the world open up to them in ways they could not imagine.

Camp POSTCARD is a long-term partnership between the Maine Sheriffs' Association, the Maine D.A.R.E.® Officers Association, and Volunteers of America. Qualified officers are invited to become volunteer leaders at camp.
