High school juniors and seniors interested in law enforcement careers are invited to apply to the 39th Annual Washington State – Kiwanis Youth Law Enforcement Camp.
The week-long summer camp will be held at the Washington State Patrol Academy in Shelton from July 10-16. The camp allows teens to explore various opportunities in the law enforcement field through hands-on experience. Teens will get to work on the WSP drive course and tactical firing range, work with K-9 units and hear from guest speakers who work at a variety of law enforcement agencies, among other activities.
Students will also get exposure to law enforcement problems and challenges officers encounter on a daily basis to learn how to handle those situations in a professional manner.
The application deadline is May 6. The application can be downloaded here.
The camp costs $500 per cadet, though participants can seek sponsorships through local Kiwanis Clubs. More information about the camp and sponsorship can be found here.
