Pennsylvania Organizations Teach Teens About Policing, Military

June 12, 2018  | 

A unique weeklong youth camp presented by Pennsylvania State Police, the American Legion, and Pennsylvania National Guard has attracted dozens of students interested in a career in law enforcement and/or the military.

For six days, the teens will live in the dorms at York College, marching to and from classes in platoon formation, according to WHTM-TV.

“You will learn how to work as a team and be taught self-esteem, as you will be the future Leaders of our state and nation,” said a description of the camp on the American Legion Website

Campers — boys and girls who must have turned 15 years old by the start of camp and has not turned 18 years old by the end of camp — will attend classes in criminal codes, forensics, and crowd control. Classes also include some level of tactical operations training.

Campers who endure the physical and mental challenges presented by the instructors for the full six days will graduate on Saturday.

What a great program! Sadly there has to be a special program, back in the day this would have been a normal opportunity for anyone in high school and thee options would be discussed rather then transsexualism, BLM and other PC crap. Thanks to anyone running this program, even if the kids do not choose to serve in the PD or military thats ok, they had a choice and were exposed to it and will learn team work and leadership that can apply anywhere in life. Great job! .
