INDIANA — The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association will be celebrating its 40th annual Youth Leadership Camp, which will be held in June. The ISA is partnering with Indiana Donor Network to celebrate this memorable anniversary.
Indiana Donor Network coordinates organ, tissue and eye donation throughout Indiana and part of its mission includes educating Indiana youth about donation and transplantation. Nationwide, more than 114,000 men, women and children are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant, and about 1,300 of those patients are Hoosiers.
The northern camp session will be held June 25-28 at Pine Creek Camp in Pine Village. The Youth Leadership Camp is for boys and girls who are currently in the seventh or eighth grade and are interested in learning more about a possible career in law enforcement. The camp provides a very meaningful experience, as well as fostering relationships with other campers and officers from throughout Indiana.
Any boy or girl in the seventh or eighth grade interested in attending the camp should contact the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office or their school counselor for an application and additional information. Sheriff Kyle P. Dukes has announced that arrangements can possibly be made to cover the registration fee, for anyone interested.
