Youth Camps

What We're About...

ISP Summer Camps logo Troopers and Campers

For over 40 years, the Indiana State Police has offered young people an exciting, up-close look at law enforcement and the criminal justice system through its youth camps. The camps help students gain respect for themselves and others through programs that demonstrate the rewards of hard work and dedication.

Camps are held at universities around the state and offer campers a unique glimpse of campus life. Each program includes well-balanced meals and comfortable sleeping facilities. Camp staffs are hand-picked, responsible law enforcement personnel, who have committed themselves to preparing today's youth for their futures.

Camps are made possible through the support of the Tony Stewart Foundation, Association of Indiana Troopers, Indiana District Optimists, Indiana State Police Alliance, Indiana Troopers Association, Jaycees, Kiwanis International, Lions Clubs of Indiana and other fine sponsors throughout the community.

Law Camps

Law Camps give students entering the 7th and 8th grades a behind the scenes look at the criminal justice system.

The four-day co-ed camps offer a more advanced look at law enforcement through field trips, exciting demonstrations and motivating programs. Campers meet peers from around the state, participate in recreational activities and leave with a greater understanding of the police field.

These leadership camps are co-sponsored by the Lions Clubs of Indiana and scholarships are available.

Career Camps

Similar to the Indiana State Police Academy, Career Camps give high school students an in-depth look at law enforcement. Campers conduct their own crime scene investigations, hear from defense attorneys, judges, and other experts in the criminal justice field, and watch exciting police demonstrations during the weeklong camps. Camps allow students to make friends from around the state, participate in recreational activities and experience what the police academy is like.

These leadership camps are co-sponsored by Kiwanis International and scholarships are available.
