Indiana State Police Youth Services and Optimist Clubs of Indiana are the co-sponsors of Respect for Law Camp and are open to students completing the fourth- or fifth-grades this current year.
Most will be concerned with the camp at Vincennes University, June 7-9.
The three-day camp is a look at law enforcement for students who will be entering fifth- and sixth-grade next year. Police officers staff the co-ed camp and programs and include demonstrations by Emergency Response Team members, Bomb Squads, Underwater Search and Rescue Teams and Police Dogs.
Campers participate in recreational activities, are fed the type of food they enjoy, make new friends and go home with a new respect for themselves, the police officers and others.
The total cost for each child is $50, as the Breakfast Optimist Club will defray most of the expense for the outing.
Application forms are being made available at all of the Clay County grade school offices or by contacting Optimist Kenneth Turner at 446-8495.
The paperwork and payment should be returned to the Optimist Club by May 25 to allow ample time for processing.
