Sheriff’s association plans annual camp

The 38th annual Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Youth Leadership Camp will be conducted for the southern half of the state July 5, 6 and 7 at Waycross Camp and Conference Center in Brown County.

The camp is a program provided by the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association for boys and girls who are currently in seventh or eighth grade and are interested in learning more about a possible career in law enforcement.

It provides a meaningful experience and relationship with the other campers from throughout the state and sheriff’s department officers who serve as counselors and instructors.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Carothers said transportation to and from the camp is provided by the sheriff’s department, and it also will pay all camp fees for any local boy or girl who wishes to attend.

The deadline for applications is June 28.

Information: Contact the sheriff’s department from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 812-358-2141
