The Camden County Board of Commissioners is pleased to announce the recent graduation of 11 local residents from the 2022 Citizens’ Academy Class. The graduation ceremony took place in Woodbine on Thursday, June 30, 2022. All graduates were presented with a Certificate of Completion.
The Citizens’ Academy is a 10-session interactive program designed to familiarize the general public with the roles, services, and operations that comprise their Camden County Government. The program focuses on educating local residents, business owners, and interested persons who work in Camden County about how the daily County Government operations contribute to building a better community.
Each week, staff from various departments and offices spoke to the class about their roles and responsibilities with Camden County Government. As part of the class, students toured and visited the Camden County Courthouse, the Public Safety Complex in Woodbine, Two Rivers Gun Range, and the Emergency Operations Center in Kingsland. Additionally, the class attended a Board of Commissioners meeting.
“I encourage all residents to participate in future classes,” said County Administrator Steve Howard. “This is an opportunity for class members to get a thorough, in-depth look at their county government and the dynamic role it plays in their lives.”
The program is offered at no charge to Camden County residents. If you would like to learn more about participating in a future class, visit: www.camdencountyga.gov/CitizensAcademy.
