Pittsburgh Police Youth Programs Unit
The Cops & Kids Summer Camp represents a unique experience for Pittsburgh area youth to understand and explore all aspects of policing and public safety.
For one week, campers will experience positive interactions with police officers. The curriculum is designed to enhance your child’s knowledge of public safety, as well as, reinforcing positive decision-making.
It is our objective to encourage campers to start early being responsible for their actions. This year we are focusing on education, keeping them “Promise Ready” during the summer months.
The goal of Cops & Kids is to help build self esteem, self awareness, and a better understanding what it takes to become a good citizen.
The Camp Sessions will be held:
- July 18-22 – CCAC/Allegheny Campus (Northside)
- July 25-29 – Duquesne University
- August 1-5 – University Of Pittsburgh
See the attached flyer and application for more information.
