Teens sought for State Police Youth Week

HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania State Police and Pennsylvania American Legion 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 is June 8 through 14 at York College. Males and females interested in applying for the camp must be between the ages of 15 and 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.

To apply: Visit the Pennsylvania American legion website at and click on the “Programs” link; or call the Pennsylvania American Legion Headquarters at (717) 730-9100.
