The Lawrence Police Department is once again offering its police camp for youths this summer.

Children will participate in hands-on activities, incorporating teamwork, physical and mental fitness, and other activities to highlight careers in law enforcement. The camp also teaches life skills, builds self-confidence, develops self-esteem and promotes citizenship.

The camp is limited to 60 children, and the cost is $30 per child, which includes two T-shirts and a meal on the last day of camp.
