Camps


Career Camps

Similar to the Indiana State Police Academy, career camps give high school age students an in-depth and hands on law enforcement experience. This means that any child going into high school or that has graduated but not yet attended college is eligible to attend camps. These camps are co-ed camps that are directed by Troopers throughout the entire week. Our staff is compiled of male and female law enforcement personnel, utilizing many of the same experts that train our very own Troopers, as well as professionals from other walks of life that relate to a law enforcement field. Attending the camps, each camper will find out what it takes to be a police offer, experience some of the same things that officers do during their career and get to see the other careers and specialties within the law enforcement field. Campers will participate in physical training, conduct their own crime scene investigations, hear from defense attorneys, judges, and other experts in the criminal justice field, and watch exciting police demonstrations! All career camps are held at Universities to give participants an idea of college life while at the camp. All career camps start on Sunday and end that Friday. There is a graduation ceremony at the close of the camp that Friday afternoon that parents/family are invited to attend!

Indiana Youth Cadet Law Enforcement Academy Camp

The ISP and ITYS are partnering with the American Legion for this camp! The American Legion believes that our youth have a strong sense of patriotism and a high regard for Law and Order. The objective of IYCLEA Camp is to provide a first-hand look at the role of a police officer in today’s society. This is similar to the Career Camp above (a week long, co-ed and any child going into high school or that has graduated but not yet attended college), but is more closely modeled as a mini, week long Indiana State Police Academy. This camp season, the American Legion has graciously agreed to sponsor 50 youths to attend this camp!! The first 50 registered prior to July 2, 2018 will be accepted.  Please contact Sgt. Danielle Elwood Henderson @ (317) 450-8720 for information on your local American Legion for sponsorship information!

Law Camps

Law camps give students entering the 6th, 7th and 8th grades a behind the scenes look at the criminal justice system.  The four day co-ed camps that are held at University campuses offer a more advanced look at law enforcement through field trips, exciting demonstrations and motivating programs. Campers stay on campus for the week with the Troopers that are running the camp. There are physical activities that take place during the week along with hands on programs. Campers meet peers from around the state, participate in recreational activities and leave with a greater understanding of the police field.  Law Camps are co-sponsored by Lions Clubs of Indiana.

Junior Pioneer Camp-outs

Unlike the Career and Law camps, the Pioneer camps are designed specifically for children between ages 11-14 who need a structured program with close supervision. Group homes, welfare departments, law enforcement agencies, probation departments and school counselors may recommend children for the Pioneer Camp. These camps are held outdoors for a week. This is a co-ed camp in which the kids learn to work together to prepare their own meals, campsites and explore the outdoors. Campers receive more one on one time with law enforcement officers who can help them start to develop a more positive outlook on their future. These camps can be applied for online but must have a recommendation to accompany the application.
