ABC Channel 23 visited Camp Cadet in 2015 to run a story on Kaleidoscope The Series,
which airs on ABC23 on Sundays at 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM.
The show is 30 minutes long and covers positive activities in our region.
Camp Cadet's story is the first segment in this episode, but we encourage you to watch the entire episode.
CAMP CADET IS NOT A BOOT CAMP AND IS NOT A SOLUTION FOR DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS WITHIN THE HOME OR SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT.
Camp Cadet is a summer camp for boys and girls from Pennsylvania between the ages of twelve to fifteen. The Cambria County Camp Cadet is held at Mount Aloysius College in Cresson, PA and the camp is staffed by Troopers and other volunteers. The goal of Camp Cadet is to introduce participants to the diverse criminal justice system and establish an early, positive relationship with law enforcement personnel.
Cambria County Camp Cadet is open to all youth residing in Cambria County and is structured similar to training at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy. All participants who attend Camp Cadet are addressed as “Cadet” during the week and all cadets are required to participate in all scheduled events during the week. The camp focuses on discipline, self-esteem, teamwork, and many issues facing today’s youth.
Camp Cadet is a non-profit organization. Meals, Lodging and Programs are all provided at no cost to the cadets or their families. The only costs that may be accrued are for items that will be required to bring to camp, such as clothing, etc. Camp Cadet is funded by fund raisers and business and community donations. As a result, children from all social and economic backgrounds have the opportunity to attend the camp at minimal cost to them or their parents.
