A Cincinnati Police Department Camp that celebrates youth accomplishments will hold its latest graduation ceremony this weekend.

Seventy youth in the "Children In Trauma Intervention (C.I.T.I.) Camp" will graduate at 10 a.m. Saturday at Mt. Airy Elementary School, said Youth Services Officer Eddie Hawkins.

This is the thirteenth session of the camp, which began in September of 2011 and has graduated almost 300 students.

The students experienced a 10 week program containing curriculum that focused on leadership skills, discipline, physical training, education and therapeutic counseling. It also included drug and alcohol counseling, stress management, life skills, and parent support group.

Participants have learned positive, respectful techniques for conflict resolution and dealing with peer pressure.  

The camp is designed to encourage, inspire, motivate and challenge youth to excel on all levels of social and personal growth.

Its goal is to develop participants’ self-confidence and respect for themselves and others, and enable them to learn how to resolve conflict and overt peer pressure in a positive respectful manner.
