Summer Camps for Cops & Kids

The Pittsburgh Police Youth Programs Unit is hosting Summer Camps for Cops & Kids. The Camps represent a unique experience for Pittsburgh area youth to understand and explore all aspects of policing and public safety. For one week, campers will experience positive interactions with police officers. The curriculum is designed to enhance your child’s knowledge of public safety, as well as reinforce positive decision making.

Camps are being held at three different location: CCAC Northside Allegheny Campus, Duquesne University, and the University of Pittsburgh during the weeks of July 20, July 27, and August 3. All campers will be provided with breakfast and lunch.
