Camp Cadet is a summer camp for boys and girls from Pennsylvania between the ages of twelve to fifteen. The goal of Camp Cadet is to introduce participants to the diverse criminal justice system and establish an early, positive relationship with law enforcement personnel.
Cambria County Camp Cadet is open to all youth residing in Cambria County 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 and all cadets are required to participate in all scheduled events during the week. The camp focuses on discipline, self-esteem, teamwork, and many issues facing today’s youth.
