RCMP Youth Camp is a once in a life­time op­por­tu­nity for those con­sid­er­ing em­ploy­ment in law en­force­ment.

The week-long sum­mer camp is of­fered to stu­dents in grades 11 and 12. Coed stu­dent se­lec­tion is based on aca­demic achieve­ment, fit­ness and an in­ter­est in a polic­ing ca­reer. Re­cip­i­ents will be re­quired to have a valid class 5 driver’s li­cense. While at camp, stu­dents will be is­sued parts of the RCMP uni­form to wear and will be ex­pected to act as a troop-in­train­ing. Stu­dents will be re­quired to wake up early, keep dorms clean and be­have as pro­fes­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the RCMP.

The pro­gram of­fers par­tic­i­pa­tion and ob­ser­va­tions of ac­tiv­i­ties such as; drill, driver sim­u­la­tor train­ing, firearms, po­lice of­fi­cer sce­nar­ios, fit­ness, train­ing, troop grad­u­a­tion and a tour of the RCMP Her­itage Cen­tre and much more. Stu­dents will be able to in­ter­act with po­lice of­fi­cers from many dif­fer­ent units within the RCMP.

By the end of the week-long camp, the group will de­velop a good un­der­stand­ing of the ca­reer pos­si­bil­i­ties of­fered by the RCMP.

This op­por­tu­nity will al­low stu­dents to in­ter­act with po­lice of­fi­cers from many dif­fer­ent units with the RCMP, and ob­tain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of what life would be like as a mem­ber of the Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice.

Dead­lines for ap­pli­ca­tions is March 16, 2016. For more in­for­ma­tion go to: RCMP.KRe­cruit­ing-KRe­crute­ment. GRC@rcmp-grc.gc.ca or call 1-877-726-7472
