Press release provided

The Indiana Sheriffs Association (ISA) will celebrate its 40th annual Youth Leadership Camp, which will be held in June and July again this year. The ISA is proudly 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 is to educate Hoosier youths 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.

There will be two camp sessions this year. The first session will be held June 25- 28 at Pine Creek Camp in Pine Village, IN (Warren County), serving the northern part of the state. The second session will be held July 9-11 serving the southern part of the state at Waycross Episcopal Camp in Morgantown, IN (Brown County).

The ISA Youth Leadership Camp is open to boys and girls who are currently in 7th or 8th grade and are interested in learning more about a possible career in law enforcement. The camp provides a meaningful experience as well as relationships with other campers from throughout the state and sheriff’s deputies who serve as counselors and instructors.

Any boy or girl in the 7th or 8th grade interested in attending the camp should contact LaPorte County Sheriff’s Captain Derek J. Allen (219-326-7700, ext. 2283 / dallen@lcso.in.gov), one of the school resource officers, or your school counselor for an application and additional information. The ISA is excited to celebrate this 40-year achievement by continuing to focus on building character and inspiring leadership skills to those youth attending the 2019 sessions.
