The Cumberland Police Department Summer Youth Camp will take place on Monday, June 14, through Friday, June 18, 2021 from 8am to 4pm each day.  The camp will be held at the Salvation Army on Somerville Avenue in Cumberland.  The summer youth camp is held in cooperation with the Salvation Army as well as many local businesses.

It is the desire of the Cumberland Police Department Summer Youth Camp to mentor middle school aged boys and girls in an effort to provide them with the knowledge to make smart, healthy, safe decisions in order for them to lead a productive life.  The Youth Camp is intended to spark an interest or continued interest in law enforcement by receiving knowledge of police work and having an opportunity to participate in police training.

Applications can be acquired at the Cumberland Police Department, any Allegany County middle and elementary school within the City of Cumberland or by calling 301-759-6476.  All applications must be received by Friday, May 28th and applicants will be taken on a first come, first serve basis as we can only accommodate 35 campers. Completed applications and a $25.00 camp fee need to be dropped off at the Cumberland Police Department located at 20 Bedford St, Cumberland, MD 21502.
