Sheriffs offer youth camp

The 39th annual Indiana Sheriff's Association Youth Leadership Camp will be this June and July, said Ohio County Sheriff Glen Potts.

There will be two camp sessions this year. The first will be Tuesday, June 26, through Friday, June 29, at Pine Creek Camp in Pine Village, Ind., in Warren County, to serve the northern part of the state.

The second session will be Monday, July 9, through Wednesday, July 11, at Waycross Episcopal Camp in Morgantown, Ind., in Brown County, to serve the southern part of the state.

The Indiana Sheriff's Association Youth Leadership Camp is a program provided by the Indiana Sheriffs' Association for boys and girls who are currently in the seventh or eighth grade of school and are interested in learning more about a possible career in law enforcement.

“The camp provides a very meaningful experience, and relationship with other campers from throughout the state and sheriff officers who serve as counselors and instructors,” said Potts.

Any boy or girl in the seventh or eighth grade of school interested in attending the camp should contact the Ohio County Sheriff's Office or his or her school counselor for an application and additional information. Arrangements can possibly be made to provide the camp registration fee through a local business or civic organization for anyone interested, said Potts.
