Camp Cadet - 08/15/2011

" Camp Cadet is a summer camp for boys and girls from Pennsylvania between the ages of 12 to 15. (Chester County Camp Cadet program accepts 11 - 13 year old boys and girls) The camp is held at various locations throughout the State and staffed by Troopers, local police officers and many other volunteers. The goal of Camp Cadet is to introduce participants to the diverse criminal justice system and establish a positive relationship with law enforcement personnel."

" Camp Cadet is open to all youth and is structured similar to training at the police academy. All participants who attend Camp Cadet are addressed as “Cadet” during the week. Cadets are required to participate in all scheduled events. The camp focuses on discipline, self-esteem, teamwork, drug and alcohol education, violence prevention and many other issues facing today’s youth."

" Camp Cadet is a non-profit organization. Meals, lodging and programs are provided at no cost to the applicant. Camps are usually funded by various fund raisers and business and community donations. Some Camps may charge a small application fee to cover administration costs."

  During the camp session the PSP bring in all types of police and emergency personnel and equipment. On the Tuesday evening that falls during the camp session Ridge Fire Company has been pleased to participate, for several years, with the PSP by doing a demonstration of how we do a vehicle extrication to allow access for rescue and EMS personal and remove any passengers. After seeing how "it is done", the cadets get to ask questions, handle equipment, try on gear, sit in trucks, etc. We have had meny of the troopers say they enjoyed watching what we do. Usually, at an accident scene, they are busy dealing with the accident investigation, relatives coming into the scene, taking statements, etc. so they don't get to watch.

Many of these pictures have had their "Brightness" and "Contrast" adjusted to make it easier to see what is going on.
