Police Camp

Building Greater Victoria Students’ Self-Confidence & Interpersonal Relationships

The Greater Victoria Police Foundation’s Police Camp, modelled after the successful program that ran in the Capital Region from 1996 to 2014, is a leadership program for youth that connects them with officers from the policing agencies of Oak Bay, Saanich, Central Saanich and Victoria, including Esquimalt.

Over eight days, 50 students:

  • undertake classroom lecture discussing a wide variety of leadership and public safety topics
  • are challenged with daily physical training and activities
  • learn drill instruction
  • explore social responsibility and good citizenship
  • learn vital life skills
  • and much more

Students build self-confidence and interpersonal relationships with their peers in a team-based environment, where they also form long-term connections with members of our police services.
