Lubbock-Cooper ISD hosts Bullying Prevention Camp

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A growing problem that has affected many lives, sometimes even ending in death, is the focus of a camp for some students in Lubbock.

The Lubbock-Cooper ISD Police Explorer program hosted their inaugural Bully Prevention and Awareness Summer Camp on Monday. Camp Director Donna Montes of Catholic Family Services says this is an educational tool that will hopefully stop bullying.

"We want the kids to be able to recognize the indicators of what it is to be bullied and be able to have the tools to stop it," Montes explained.

The camp will cover several topics with students in reference to recognizing what constitutes bullying.

"We plan to focus on cyber bullying, text message and social network bullying, bullying indicators and how to report bullying. We want students to walk away from this as ambassadors for the cause," Montes said.

The students will create a bullying awareness video that will focus on what they have discussed over the week and be distributed to school districts.

"We really feel like kids learn best from other kids, so hopefully this will have a strong effect," Montes continued.

The camp is free and will start July 11 and run through July 15, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Lubbock-Cooper Middle School campus.

Students from all school districts are welcome to attend.
