Police Youth Camp

The Police Youth Camp enables pre-teen boys and girls ages 10-12 from Little Rock community to have direct and positive exposure to police officers through a five-day, four-night camp experience. The camp helps open lines of communication and improves relations between the officers and young people.  Ultimately, Police Youth Camp rewards kids for good behavior.
