The Leesburg Police Department Junior Police Camp is a one-week day camp for students have completed 6th Grade but have not yet entered 9th Grade. Each summer, two sessions are offered, with a limit of 20 participants per session.
The purpose of Junior Police Camp is to provide law enforcement education for future outstanding citizens. School Resource Officers, department staff and Law Enforcement Explorers serve as instructors, focusing on team building, leadership, conflict resolution, character education and physical fitness. Juvenile law and police procedures such as finger printing, accident investigation and evidence collection are also covered.
Participants have the opportunity to go on several field trips. Participants may visit locations such as the Loudoun County Courthouse, the Magistrate’s office, museum trips and a Ropes and Initiatives Course.
There is no fee for the Junior Police Camp. All youth interested in participating in the camp must complete an application and turn it in before the assigned due date. All applications are reviewed and those accepted to the program are notified. Turning in an application DOES NOT guarantee acceptance in the Junior Police Camp. Due to the popularity of Junior Police Camp, youth who have attended the camp in previous years are not eligible to attend.
Youth accepted into the program are responsible for bringing a bag lunch each day of camp.
Participants will receive a Junior Police Camp shirt and will be required to wear this shirt while attending camp, no exceptions! Campers will also be provided with hydration systems to help them stay hydrated during more strenuous activities.
