We will be following the health guideline set by the CDC during the youth camp. Cancellation may occur depending on current COVID restrictions.

The Lynnwood Police Department is offering an exciting opportunity for youth between the ages of 10 - 14 years old. 

This is the perfect opportunity for young men and women who want to become a police officer, or just want to learn about law enforcement, to join the Lynnwood Police Department for a four-day summer camp.

It gives youth a chance to interact with law enforcement and have positive experiences with the police, as well as learning safety tips, team building challenges and leadership development.  Some highlights include spending a day of team building at High Trek Adventure for a high ropes course challenge. Participants will also learn about police science, work with the K-9 unit and participate in SWAT team activities, plus much more!
