Camp Cadet of Lancaster County is a non-profit charity for kids in Lancaster County. The Pennsylvania State Police along with a civilian board of directors’ work together to provide the Youth of Lancaster between the ages of 11 and 13 with a free week-long overnight camp experience. Unlike other camps, our camp is a “Police Academy for Kids”. Camp Cadet of Lancaster County is structured similar to training at the State Police Academy. All participants who attend camp are addressed as “Cadet”. Our camp focuses on discipline, self-esteem, teamwork, drug and alcohol education, violence prevention and many other issues facing today’s youth.
Camp Cadet of Lancaster County is a non-profit charity completely funded by Donations and Fundraisers! Camp Cadet receives no funding from local or state governments. We are 100% funded by donations received from the community and through fundraisers held by the Board of Directors. Times are financially getting tougher. It is becoming increasingly harder for us to receive donations from the community. It is during times of financial strain that we see an increase in crime. Help us keep the youth of Lancaster County on the right path to becoming law-abiding active members in our community. We need your donations to help us continue with this wonderful program that many consider an “experience of a life time”.
