RCMP always recruiting, hosting youth camp

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police offers meaningful work, vast opportunities, the chance to serve across Canada and a career like no other. The RCMP is always recruiting and we are looking for people from all walks of life to join Canada’s national police service.

As part of the RCMP’s recruiting efforts, recruiters in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories and Nunavut have partnered with the RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division, to send 32 high-school students to the fourth annual youth camp for one week in August. Students were selected based on academic achievement and their interest in a career in policing. They will learn what it’s like to be a police officer in training through activities such as drill, driver simulation training, and tours of the RCMP Academy and the RCMP Heritage Centre.

The RCMP Youth Camp supports the RCMP’s National Youth Strategy, which aims to increase youth awareness and influence youth behaviour through behaviour modeling, mentoring, active learning, and engaging youth to positively influence their peers, school, and community.

The RCMP Youth Camp runs from August 11 through August 15, 2014. Recruiters from across the Prairies and from the North and RCMP Academy instructors will join the students and will serve as mentors, teachers, and role models.
