Kids this summer have an opportunity to meet motivational speaker, or "edutainer" as he calls himself, Retro Bill.
This week kicks off the Sheriff's Youth Camp, which the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office puts on every summer.
This week-long camp features children's advocate Retro Bill, who speaks at schools all over the country teaching kids about bullying, safety, and leadership.
"Law enforcement, I believe in my heart, has a prevention capacity and as anybody watches the news and we see things that are going on in our country with bullying and, oh, and violence, even in schools, I think the more we can get into the hearts and minds of our young people and inspire them to be a good citizen, to be kind, work out your differences in a healthy way," says Retro Bill.
The camp is free for all kids in the area thanks to local sponsorships from the community.
Later this summer, the camp will be in Cayucos and Templeton.
