JUL 24-Drug Demand Reduction (DDR) Specialist Ron Dollar of the Arkansas Army National Guard and DEA Special Agent Keith Warzecha hosted a Drug Education For Youth (DEFY) camp at Camp Robinson, Arkansas during the week of July 7th 2003. The week-long camp was organized with Cindy Bartlett, coordinator of the Texarkana Weed and Seed program. Forty, "at-risk" preteens attended the camp which consisted of physical fitness, drug education and activities such as swimming and fishing. They also went on field trips to the IMAX theatre and Pulaski County Juvenile Detention Center, amongst other places. The curriculum included physical fitness, drug awareness, drug resistance, social skills, role playing, and self-management skills.

National Guard Officer Gary Thompson from Ft. Worth, Sgt. Jack Vega from Austin, Sgt. Humberto Gonzalez from McAllen, and Ricardo Banda from Laredo Texas provided educational assistance. Texarkana Weed and Seed Police Officer Lonnie Booker and Sergeant Stephen Gass assisted with motivational lectures and anti-drug role playing exercises.
