Police youth camp set for next month; deadline to register is May 18


The Lawrence Police Department is once again offering its police camp for youth this summer.

The camp is open to children, ages 8 to 12, and will be June 7-9 on the Free State High School campus, 4700 Overland Drive. The camp runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Children will participate in hands-on activities, incorporating teamwork, physical and mental fitness, and other activities to highlight careers in law enforcement. The camp also teaches life skills, builds self-confidence, develops self-esteem and promotes citizenship.

The camp is limited to 60 children, and the cost is $30 per child, which includes two T-shirts and a meal on the last day of camp.

The application deadline is Friday, May 18. Applications can be found online at http://police.lawrenceks.org/content/police-camp-2012, and they may be mailed or dropped off at the Lawrence Police Department, Special Projects Unit, 4820 Bob Billings Parkway.

The deadline has been extended to May 18 because openings are still available. The original deadline was May 11.

Even kids hate cops. There are still plenty of openings available because it's a lame summer camp for kids. Kids want to go to a real camp, not cop camp. Lame.

Are they going to learn how to sweep stuff under the rug in exchange for KU b-ball tix?
