John Richmeier Leavenworth Time

After a two-year hiatus, Leavenworth Police Department officials plan to resume an annual summer camp for children.

Police department officials are still working out some details for this year’s camp, but it will take place June 13-17, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The location has not yet been determined.

Nicodemus said the free summer camp provides opportunities for police to interact with young people.

They have direct insight into what we are doing, he said.

The deputy said the program could inspire future law enforcement officers and helps officers build new relationships and trust.

The police department has not yet begun accepting applications for the camp. But as in the past, children entering grades four through six will be able to enroll, Nicodemus said.

He said a flyer will be prepared for the event.

He said the camp will be limited to around 50 children and priority will be given to applicants who live in the city.

The camp has not taken place for the past two years due to COVID-19.

That’s not the concern he’s been for the past two years, Nicodemus said of the coronavirus.
