Putnam County Sheriff Mark Frisbie today announced the 29th Annual Indiana Sheriff's Youth Leadership Camp will be held in June and July.
There will be two camp sessions this year: the first session will be held June 23-25 serving the northern part of the state at Ross Camp in West Lafayette.
The second session will be held July 7-9 at Waycrosss Episcopal Camp in Morgantown (Brown County) serving the southern part of the state.
The Sheriff's Youth Leadership Camp is a program provided by the Indiana Sheriff's Association for boys and girls who are currently in the seventh grade 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," Frisbie said in making the announcement.
Any boy or girl interested in attending the camp should contact the Sheriff's Office or their school counselor for an application and additional information.
The Sheriff announced that arrangements can probably be made to provide the camp registration fee through a local business or civic organization for anyone interested.
