  DRPS Looking For Junior Campers

Jun 05, 2015 09:46 ET

This program is currently full, thank you for your interest.

The DRPS is currently looking for students aged 10-13 interested in participating in a fun-filled educational camp this coming August.

The Youth In Policing Program, supported by DRPS, will host its annual Junior Youth In Policing Leadership Camp at Durham College in Oshawa from Tuesday, August 11, to Friday, August 14, 2015.

The goal of this event is to bridge the gap between youth and police officers, in order to inspire the youth to become leaders of change within their schools and communities.

The Junior Youth In Policing leadership camp consists of four FREE Fun Filled days, where junior students will participate in various hands-on activities, while receiving positive mentorship from our 2015 Youth In Policing students. The students who attend the four-day leadership camp will be awarded an official Durham Regional Police certificate to recognize their participation.

At this time, we are seeking junior students aged 10-13 for the 2015 Junior Youth In Policing Leadership Camp who have not previously participated, as we are striving to inspire as many youth in Durham Region as possible. The camp is free of cost and spots are limited!

Please complete the following steps to apply:

 Fill out the attached registration form
 Fill out Student & Parent/Guardian Behavioral Contract Form
 Email the completed forms to the Youth In Policing Committee at or submit it by mail or in person to Durham Regional Police Headquarters at 605 Rossland Road East, Box 911 Whitby, ON L1N 0B8 by Monday June 22nd.

Important: Junior students will not be considered registered until the attached forms are completed, and submitted back to us. All registration is done on a first-come-first-served basis. Once your junior student has successfully been registered you will receive a confirmation email.

Thank you for your interest in the program!
