About Camp Cadet
Camp Cadet is designed to bring to its youth a better understanding of law enforcement activities while living in the atmosphere of the State Police Academy. Emphasis is placed on self-discipline and the ability to make new friends while working as a team.
Camp Cadet is NOT for troubled youth -- this is a BIG misconception!! In fact, the week long experience is offered to ANY boy or girl, age 12 through 15 that is a resident of Bedford County. The camp is provided FREE to all youth thanks to the generous support of Bedford County businesses and friends, an annual fundraiser held by the cadets, and the annual Golf outing held at Iron Masters golf club.
Among the subjects to be presented at camp are the use of helicopters by the State Police and medical personnel, Wildlife Conservation Officers from the Pennsylvania Game & Fish Commission, K-9 Demonstrations, local humane agencies, and the unforgettable Obstacle Course Competition.
Camp Cadet 2017 will run from Sunday, June 18 through Friday June 23. (Check back at a later date for Check-in and Graduation times.)
Bedford County youth interested in the program must submit an application. Deadline for applications is Friday March 3, 2017. (Camp staff will be visiting local schools beginning in February 2017 to explain the program and hand out applications.) An interview will then be scheduled at the Bedford State Police Barracks by Staff Members
