Southcentral Camp Cadet is Going Virtual This Summer

CARLISLE – The Pennsylvania State Police will be hosting the Southcentral Camp Cadet
Virtual Experience from June 21 through August 13.

The program is developed by and coordinated through the Pennsylvania State Police, Troop H. The goal of Camp Cadet is to establish a positive relationship between law enforcement and youth.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an in-person summer camp was not possible. Wanting to still
provide a program to local youth, the Southcentral Camp Cadet Virtual Experience was created!
The camp gives youth an in-depth look at the world of a police officer. Each week videos,
activities, quizzes, and assignments will be posted to a secure online platform. Those enrolled
in the program will learn about a variety of different facets of the law enforcement field such as
forensics, police canines, the criminal justice system, police training, and more.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Southcentral Camp
Cadet staff, all of which are state and local law enforcement, through the virtual experience
platform. The program is designed to be interactive. Weekly fitness challenges, community
service, and activities will be assigned throughout the duration of the program.
Registered participants will receive all materials for the program including a Southcentral Camp
Cadet uniform, drawstring backpack, water bottle, and more!
To register, participants must:
• Participants must be between 13-17 years old
• Must reside within the following counties: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin,
Perry, or York
• Participants must complete at least six of the eight weekly activities and assignments in
