OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. -- Mississippi RiverKings' trusty mascot and token turtle, Sheldon, visited the new recruits at Camp B.U.I.L.D. at Olive Branch Intermediate School on June 17. 

Sheldon exchanged high fives, hugs, and encouragement to all the campers, volunteers, and staff members. 

"During this camp, students learn the following skills; body, unity, inner self, leadership and development," added Camp Director Amber Andry. The camp concludes with a march and graduation at the end of the four weeks. 

Camp B.U.I.L.D. is a four week camp hosted by the Olive Branch Police Department. It is held annually for the community's youth, ages ranging from grades 4-8, at no cost to the campers' parents. The camp's program is modeled after the police academy's drills and values while also including fun activities, such as playful dodgeball and an outdoor water day.

If you would like Sheldon to visit your camp or event, please contact Caitlyn Hutchins at caitlyn@riverkings.com or 662.342.1755.
