Law Enforcement Youth Camp

Law Enforcement Youth Camp (LEYC) is a non-profit organization that provides an opportunity for disadvantaged youth within Pierce County to attend a summer camp that they might not be able to attend otherwise. It gives them a chance to interact with law enforcement and have positive experiences with the police, as well as experience the fun and positive interactions of attending a week-long camp.


Camp is located on 40 acres in the beautiful foothills of Mt. Rainier in Wilkerson Washington, overlooking Sunset Lake.  Selected children take part in a variety of activities at camp including swimming, horseback riding, archery, fishing, a whiffle ball tournament, and campfire skits and songs. The kids are given a chance to see police officers and deputy sheriffs in roles they may never have seen them in, camp counselors. This gives the kids a chance to see that officers have lives that include families, hobbies and activities outside of law enforcement. The children are what the Law Enforcement Youth Camp is all about.


The 2024 camp is scheduled for:  August 19-23.
