LEMA Honor Guard Camp – Camp Ripley, Little Falls, MN

Sunday, September 15th, 2019 – Thursday, September 19th, 2019


Every year, law enforcement officers from Minnesota and across the nation come to the Minnesota Army National Guard training center at Camp Ripley, MN to participate in a week long camp dedicated to training officers in the basic and advanced fundamentals of an honor guard. Camp is geared at preparing officers for any type of ceremonial event request they may receive, to include a line of duty death funeral for an officer.

Officers learn drill and ceremony, standing ceremonial guard, colors movement, colors posting/retiring, casket movement, flag fold and firing party detail. In addition, attendees learn how to plan and organize funerals and ceremonies.

LEMA Honor Guard Camp is the first such training camp in the US.
