Grande Prairie, Alta.- On March 7, 2019, Grande Prairie RCMP recognized Blackmans Butcher and Sausage Hut for their generous long term contribution to Camp Little Buffalo. Blackmans has been a partner with the RCMP, raising funds for Camp Little Buffalo for nearly two decades.  Blackmans has donated supplies and given countless hours to the organization of the annual fundraising barbeque, which has collectively raised over $70,000 that has allowed approximately 500 youth to attend Camp.  

Camp Little Buffalo is a 5-day leadership camp directed towards youth (11-13 years old) and provides opportunities for leadership, self confidence and social skills development.   The youth are referred by community agencies within Grande Prairie and surrounding areas which include; schools, counselling organizations, and Child Family Services.  Members of the Grande Prairie RCMP Community Policing Unit  and partnering agencies (PACE, Catholic Family Services and Alberta Health Services) organize and operate the camp which is free for the youth to attend.

Grande Prairie RCMP Community Policing Unit are in the process of organizing their annual barbeque in support of Camp Little Buffalo with further details to be announced closer to the date.
