State Police Seeking Applicants for ‘State Police Youth Week’

| March 20, 2014

YORK, Pa. (EYT) – The Pennsylvania State Police and the Pennsylvania American Legion recently announced that they are seeking applicants for “State Police Youth Week,” a leadership camp designed for teenagers interested in pursuing a career in military service or law enforcement.

The week-long camp is staffed by members of the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Army National Guard, and Pennsylvania American Legion. During the camp, cadets take part in team-building exercises, physical fitness training, classroom activities involving police and military information, and a marksmanship course. Cadets are taught military courtesy and participate in a platoon-based drill competition. The camp is not considered a recreational camp nor is it considered a disciplinary camp.

The camp will be held at York College in York, Pa. from June 8 through June 14. Males and females interested in applying for the camp must be between the ages of 15-17 prior to entering the camp and not reach the age of 18 before or during the camp. Students who have previously attended the camp as a cadet are not eligible to apply again. Applicants are expected to have a good academic record and be in good health.

For application information, visit the Pennsylvania American Legion website at www.pa-legion.com and click on the “Programs” link or call the Pennsylvania American Legion Headquarters at 717-730-9100.

State Police Youth Week was established in 1970 with the goal of improving the relationship between Pennsylvania’s youth and the law enforcement community. Last year, 90 cadets graduated from the camp.
