ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) - The Rowan Sheriff’s Office is once again offering the popular G.R.E.A.T. camps for kids in grades 4, 5, and 6 this summer. There is free food, fun, enrichment sessions, games, and trips. A free lunch will be provided each day.

A variety of fun and competitive games will be played. Trips may include swimming, bowling, and other fun and interesting places and activities.
