The Lynnwood Police Department Monday launched its annual Lynnwood Police Youth Camp, giving kids a chance to learn important safety skills, team building and leadership. This is the third year for the all-day camp, which is held at Meadowdale High School.
For four days, 30 kids 11-14 years old will learn about the role of police work in the community. Youth campers will get to try fingerprinting, working with K9 units, and SWAT activities like robot/drones and camera demonstrations. The camp also includes demonstrations from police motorcycles, custody procedures and vehicle collision investigations. The event will close on Thursday with camp competitions, a barbecue and a camper awards ceremony.
Registration for the Lynnwood Police Youth Camp is closed and the event is not open to the public.
