Back by popular demand and a 2-year hiatus due to COVID, the RCMP Youth Camp is set to go with applications currently being accepted. The camp will run from Monday July 3, 2023 to Friday July 7, 2023, and is being hosted at a Nanaimo high school. Applications must be submitted no later than March 10th.

If you’re a student currently enrolled in Grade 11 or 12 in School District 68(Nanaimo & Ladysmith), 69(Oceanside), 70(Pacific Rim) or 79(Cowichan Valley) and you are thinking of a career in law enforcement or as an emergency responder, then this experience is for you, said Corporal Jana Rose, whose Nanaimo RCMP Youth Unit is responsible for organizing the 5-day event.

Running, self-defence, law, forensics, marching, team building and many other acctivities make up this action packed week. Previous recruits have commented that their days are full and it really gave them an insight into what law enforcement is all about and what it takes to become a real Mountie, said R/Cst Gary O’Brien Media Spokesperson for the Nanaimo RCMP.

The cost for the camp is $400 and all candidates must be able to pass a fitness test, a Police Information Check, and have good attendance at their respective school. To apply, candidates can contact any of the School Liaison Officers listed at their respective schools or any school counsellor. Assistance with enrollment fees is possible through fund raising. Please contact your RCMP School Liaison Officer or Guidance Counsellor for assistance.
