Indiana County Camp Cadet is a summer camp for boys and girls between the ages of thirteen to fifteen who reside in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. The camp is held at Camp Seph Mack in Penn Run, PA. This year, camp will be held from Sunday August 3rd through Saturday August 9th, 2014. Indiana County Camp Cadet is staffed by Pennsylvania State Troopers, local police officers and many other volunteers. The goal of Camp Cadet is to introduce participants to the diverse criminal justice system and establish a positive relationship with law enforcement personnel.
Camp Cadet is open to all youth and is structured similar to training at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy. All participants who attend camp cadet are addressed as “Cadet” during the week. Cadets are required to participate in all scheduled events. The camp focuses on discipline, self-esteem, physical fitness, teamwork, drug and alcohol education, violence prevention and many other issues facing today’s youth. Cadets work together throughout the week to complete individual and team oriented tasks. Each Cadet will have a once in a life time experience, learning about themselves, various aspects of law enforcement, the role of first responders, self defense and many other areas. Cadets will spend time playing sports, learning CPR, and creating lasting friendships.
