Police and Youth Together
NCCJ Youth Programming
Police and Youth Together!
Police and Youth Together (PAYT) is a free week-long day camp for students ages 10 to 13. PAYT is offered in collaboration with local area law enforcement agencies from across the Miami Valley. PAYT builds bridges between police and youth as well as their families, teaching respect and encouraging an appreciation of diversity. During PAYT, youth learn valuable leadership skills, such as how to accept differences, and to disagree respectfully. In addition to fostering a collaborative learning environment, PAYT also promotes relationship development between officers and youth through outdoor games, art projects, and crafts.
In 2024, PAYT will take place twice. We will host one spring break camp and one summer camp. NCCJ also offers a year of follow up activities happening once a month for all PAYT campers and officers.
2024 PAYT Dates:
Spring Break: March 25 – 28, 2024 (NW Dayton Rec Center)
Summer (Dates TBA)
