2018 Lower Township Police Youth Camp

Chief William Mastriana would like to announce the Lower Township Police Department is hosting a Lower Township Youth Camp for students who are entering 6th, 7th and 8th grades.  This camp is set to begin July 30th and ends with a graduation and barbeque at the Cape May County Park on August 3rd,  2018. 

The camp is designed to foster a positive and healthy interaction between police officers and the youth of our community. The young people attending this camp will be focusing on building self-esteem, teamwork, good decision making, communication skills and educational lessons focused on life skills.

The camp participants will experience various activities including (but not limited to) a day at Morey’s Piers, a four hour saltwater fishing trip, a ride on the Silver Bullet speed boat, a behind the scenes tour of the Cape May County Zoo, participation in the Tree To Tree ropes and zip line course at the County Park and many police type activities including a trip to the Cape May County Police Academy to use the police simulator training room, SWAT and K9 demonstrations, Crime Scene investigation techniques and a block of instruction on interactions with police called “Hand All Together.” 

All participants for this year’s camp have already been chosen and were randomly selected after applying earlier this summer. The camp is a cooperative effort by the Lower Township Police Department and Cape Assist, via their Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition (LTHYC). The camp is primarily organized by the Police Department’s School Resource Officer, Patrolman Bill Barcas and Cape Assist’s Steve Selby, who is the coordinator of the townships youth coalition.
In addition to the many other organizations and sponsors are responsible for the success of the camp.  Follow us on FACEBOOK @   LOWER TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR FURTHER DETAILS AND TO SEE US IN ACTION ALL WEEK!
