Indiana State Police offering summer youth camps


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana State Police are offering a series of summer youth camps throughout the state.

Police say the camps are designed to help students get a close view of the workings of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. The 11 camps include demonstrations by the state police SWAT team and bomb squad, divers and crime scene technicians.

Camps are open for students entering grades 5-12. Camps open June 12.

The 11 camps are held at universities and state parks throughout Indiana, including the University of Notre Dame, University of Southern Indiana, Anderson University, Mounds State Park and New Harmony State Park.

Students must be recommended for the highest level of camps, called Pioneer Campouts.
