WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A week with police is a treat to 25 students in Wilmington this week. Wilmington Police officers donated their time to rising sixth graders for a week of fun activities at Cop Camp.
“I have a chance, instead of sitting home all summer, to hang out with people I know, meet new people, meet new friends,” camper Luke Dewyea said.
Today students not only learned how to make some delicious fondue, but they also learned to build and test some pretty cool cars.
“We’re making solar carts and solar ovens,” camper Pedro Duran said. “And here I have a solar cart that I’ve been working on and we’re going to take it outside and see if it rolls.”
The officers hope that the students leave with them as mentors and a more positive impression of police officers.
