CLARION, Pa. – The Pennsylvania State Police, Troop C, Camp Cadet Program will be held at Clarion University from July 20 to July 25, 2014.
The camp is for boys and girls, 12 to 14 years of age, from Clarion, Clearfield, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, and McKean Counties.
Campers will stay at the university for the entire week. The camp will consist of demonstrations and speakers from organizations such as the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, PA Game Commission, and several state police related programs such as the PSP Helicopter and Special Emergency Response Team (SWAT). During the week, campers will also enjoy swimming and a canoe trip on the Clarion River in Cooksburg.
This is a fun camp for young people to learn about law enforcement and teamwork. This is not a camp for problem-solving of young people. The program is conducted under conditions similar to the Pennsylvania State Police Academy. Campers are required to rise in the morning and participate in physical training, movement about the campus is done in formation, and campers are required to address people according to military standards.
