WSP, Kiwanis host career camp

Applications are being accepted for the 31st annual Washington State Patrol-Kiwanis Youth Law Enforcement Career Camp, to be held at the WSP Academy in Shelton, Wash., July 25 through July 31.

The camp will include classes and demonstrations from the SWAT team, K-9, driving course, and defensive tactics. The purpose of the camp is to provide selected high school juniors and seniors who have an interest in law enforcement an opportunity to explore the various job opportunities in that field. It offers exposure to problems encountered by law enforcement officers on a daily basis and shows how to handle these situations in a professional manner. Many students who attend the academy go on to have careers in the criminal justice field.

Applications will be accepted through May 22 and can be downloaded at, under “Outreach.”
