June 17th thru the 21st kids aged 10 to 15 years old will be able to participate in a fun and hands on youth camp. The Prairie Band Potawatomi Tribal Police will teach firearm safety, police investigation, crime scene investigation, fingerprinting, drug and alcohol prevention and much more. The camp helps introduce kids to possible career paths they may not have otherwise considered and by working with law enforcement it also breaks down boundaries and helps to foster a positive relationship between youth and law enforcement.
Attendees will also get to go to Kansas City for a baseball game, and Banner Creek Reservoir where they’ll participate in a fishing derby. Fishing poles and tackle will be provided to the campers, and at the end they’ll be able to keep them. This Youth Camp, operated by Prairie Band Potawatomi Tribal Police, is free to campers and all meals are provided throughout the week. If you live in the area, be sure to look in to this opportunity.
If you don’t live in the area and have kids, get online and check out all the different summer hunting, fishing and outdoor themed camps available. Get them off the couch, off their devices and away from the television. Let them spend some time in the great outdoors learning new skills!
Have a great summer!
