What are TAPS Camps?

TAPS Academy Camps allow police, public officials and community partners an opportunity to connect with youth in a positive, fun and educational environment. TAPS Camp students often say "it was fun and I learned a lot." Our philosophy is Service-learning by EAR; Education in the classroom, Action in the community and Reflection about what has been learned.
