Kids at Montgomery County's Police Adventure Camp greet a police horse.

At Police Adventure Camp in Wheaton, kids are learning about all kinds of neat stuff like how to make clay sculptures, about snakes, and they even got to meet a police horse.

"Well, sir, today's camp is actually happening all week. At the camp, we're trying to work with the kids to develop their relationship with police officers and what they do," says Montgomery Mike Prather. "Through that, we're teaching the kids to make good decisions, to not succumb to peer pressure, and to basically have confidence in themselves and do the right thing. That's what the camp is about."

Some junior reporters also had some tips on how to keep cool as they are.

"It's important to stay hydrated," says Jacob.

"They should wear a hat on their heads and sunscreen on their skin," says Michelle Johnson.

Laura advises that between noon and 3 p.m: "They should go into cool shelter."

Camp runs through this Friday.
