CLARION – The Pennsylvania State Police Troop C Camp Cadet Program will be held at Clarion University of Pennsylvania July 24-29, 2022.
The camp is for boys and girls ages 13-15 from Clarion, Clearfield, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, McKean and northern Indiana counties. Campers will stay at the University all week.
Activities featured at Camp Cadet include a full range of demonstrations and speakers from local fire departments, PA State Police specialty units (Aviation, Forensics, SERT), PA Game Commission, a retired US Navy SEAL, the FBI, the US Secret Service, the US Coast Guard, a county coroner and the PA National Guard.
During the week, campers can also enjoy a canoe trip on the Clarion River in Cooks Forest.
This is a fun camp for young people who want to learn about law enforcement and teamwork. This is not a problem-solving camp for young people.
The program takes place under conditions similar to the training experienced by cadets at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy.
Campers are required to get up in the morning and participate in physical training. Travel on campus is in military formation and campers are required to address people according to military standards.
The non-refundable fee to attend is only $20 per person, as the camp is funded entirely by private donations.
If you know of a child interested in attending camp, please pick up a Camp Cadet application at the school they attend, your local C-Troop State Police station, or by contacting Private Bruce A. Morris at Ridgway State Police; 814-772-2399 or [email protected]
Submissions are processed as received to complete the Camp Supplement and completed applications must be received no later than June 1, 2022.
