ISA Youth Camp set for June and July


Indiana Sheriffs Association Logo.jpgNews Release

            The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association will be celebrating their 40th Annual Indiana Sheriff’s Association Youth Leadership Camp, which will be held in June and July again this year. The ISA is proudly partnering with Indiana Donor Network to celebrate this memorable anniversary.

            Indiana Donor Network coordinates organ, tissue, and eye donation throughout Indiana and part of their mission includes educating Indiana youth about donation and transplantation. Nationwide, more than 114,000 men, women, and children are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and about 1,300 of those patients are Hoosiers.

            There will be two (2) camp sessions this year. The first session will be held June 25-28 at Pine Creek Camp in Pine Village, Indiana (Warren County), serving the Northern part of the state. The second session will be held July 9-11 serving the Southern part of the state at Waycross Episcopal Camp in Morgantown, Indiana (Brown County).

            The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Youth Leadership Camp is a program provided by the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association for boys and girls who are currently in the 7th or 8th grade of school and are interested in learning more about a possible career in law enforcement. The camp provides a very meaningful experience as well as relationships with other campers from throughout the state and sheriff officers who serve as counselors and instructors.

            Any boy or girl in the 7th or 8th grade of school interested in attending the camp should contact the Sheriff’s Office or your school counselor for an application and additional information. The Sheriff announced that arrangements can possibly be made to provide the camp registration fee through a local business or civic organization for anyone interested.

            The ISA is excited to celebrate this 40-year achievement by continuing to focus on building character and inspiring leadership skills to those youth attending the 2019 sessions.
