Since 1970, the Indiana State Police have sponsored summer youth camps. Applications for the 2009 summer camp programs are now being accepted.
Camps take place at colleges and universities around the state and offer campers a unique glimpse of campus life.
Each program includes well-balanced meals and comfortable sleeping facilities. Camp staffs are hand-picked, responsible law enforcement personnel who have committed themselves to preparing today's youth for the future.
ISP Youth Camps are made possible through the support of the Association of Indiana Troopers, Indiana District Optimists, Indiana State Police Alliance, Indiana Troopers Association, Jaycees, Kiwanis International, Lions Club of Indiana and the Pacers Foundation.
