Youth Leadership Summer Camp Registration is Thursday

Youth Leadership Summer Camp

A drive-thru registration for the Las Cruces Police Department’s sixth annual Youth Leadership Summer Camp will begin at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, June 25, at Lynn Middle School.

The free camp – modified this year to help ensure safety during the Covid-19 public health emergency – includes four 1-week sessions (Monday-Friday) set to begin July 6, July 13, July 20 and July 27. Parents or guardians can register their youth, ages 11-15 or at least entering 6th Grade, for only one of the four sessions. The camp is limited to 25 students per session.

The Youth Leadership Summer Camp will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day and is a collaborative effort with Dr. Blanca E. Araujo, the Stan Fulton Endowed Chair in Education at New Mexico State University. Much of the camp is held at Lynn Middle School but campers also visit New Mexico State University.

The camp provides youth with CPR and First Aid training, teamwork building, archery, fishing, crime scene investigation, D.A.R.E. and DWI simulations, anti-bullying and harassment lessons, and other activities similar to the Character Counts module. All events will follow the Governor’s guidelines on social distancing and safety during the public health emergency.

The camp is free and includes a complimentary breakfast and lunch each day (breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m.). Participants will receive a free camp T-shirt, water bottle, mask, and gloves. Masks must be worn during the camp and hand washing stations will also be provided. Camp directors, LCPD School Resource Officers, will help ensure camp participants are safe by following social distancing guidelines and sanitizing facilities and equipment before each new session.

Parents or guardians must register students in-person, during a drive-thru registration at Lynn Middle School, 950 S. Walnut St., beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 25. The entrance for the drive-thru registration will be from Nevada Avenue heading east toward the Lynn Middle School cafeteria. Camps tend to fill fast so parents or guardians are encouraged to arrive early to select session dates that best suit their summer schedule.

No phone or email registrations will be accepted. Parents or guardians should bring proof of the student’s age, school, and grade entering the upcoming school year and the student’s T-shirt size. For more information about the camp, contact Sgt. Vincent Shadd by email at LCPDYouthcamp@las-cruces.org.
