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.


The children are what the Law Enforcement Youth Camp is all about. 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. This gives the kids a chance to see that officers have lives that include families, hobbies and activities outside of law enforcement.


The 2022 camp is scheduled for August 22-26. The camp will have Covid-19 restrictions in place that will require participating law enforcement agencies to follow, e.g., possible rapid-testing of all attendees just prior to camp, signed liability waivers, etc.
