Happy Kid

Dev absolutely loved Law Enforcement Camp.  As he shook hands with the Troopers, he told them, "I'll see you next year!"

All of his classmates stayed the entire week, which is apparently a rare thing.  In addition to hearing from people employed in all sorts of law enforcement careers, the class learned to march in formation, were expected to clean their rooms and bathrooms daily, and were responsible for getting themselves to the right places at the right times.  Then there was the 3am wake up for PT.  A the midnight jog.  And the sprints and the push-ups...

Dev thrived.

We knew he'd hear from attorneys, officers, and detectives while at camp.  He also saw demonstrations by the bomb squad and SWAT, and heard from a K-9 officer, a member of the Secret Service, and a forensic documents examiner.  The last one was among his favorites.  There was a trip to the jail which Dev found completely uninteresting, and two evenings of free time in the pool that he loved.  (There was even a zipline and climbing wall in the pool area!)

After the graduation, Dev exchanged hugs and handshakes with many.  I am so glad he went, and so relieved he loved it.

Now we're both going to get some sleep.  In thirty-six hours, we check in to karate camp.

He said karate camp will be a breeze in comparison because, even though there are lots of push-ups, he doesn't have to do any of them in the middle of the night. :)

That sounds like a great experience for him. I'm glad he loved it.

My kids all three went to ROTC summer camp when they were in high school and there were a lot of experiences they'd never have received anywhere else in soCal.

Dang, not much time to rest, is there?

Not much rest time at all, alas, but it's worth it.

Yesterday Dev asked if he could do the law enforcement camp _twice_ next year. So I guess he really did enjoy himself.
