Camp Cadet Aims to Save Lives

Local law enforcement trains young "cadets" to never give up

 

by Camp Cadet, John Vogt & Rhonda Pearson, Chloe Quimby - July 7, 2015

On today’s broadcast Home Page focuses on Camp Cadet. We visit with Trooper Daniel Doney, Trooper Angela Bieber, and some of the young people who participated in the program.

Camp Cadet is a five-day experience for boys and girls between the ages of twelve and thirteen. They are exposed to law enforcement activities and are provided an opportunity to get to know police officers on a personal basis. The purpose of Camp Cadet is to provide insight into police training and the overall expectations of a police officer. This program is a true-to-life experience, patterned after municipal and state police training.

The cadets are challenged by classroom instruction and physical activities. They are also taught self-discipline and how to work as team players. When self-discipline of the cadet breaks down, pushups or other physical exercises are implemented. However, this program is not a recreational camp, nor is it a disciplinary camp for problem youth. The camp is designed to provide participants with better understanding of law enforcement activities as they learn self-discipline, make new friends, and work as part of a team. The discipline training fosters a positive attitude, which helps many graduating cadets attain goals they once thought to be unattainable.

Top cadets are chosen from each company and out of those cadets there are two honorary cadets, one male and one female, selected to go the commissioner’s camp next August.

The top female cadet is chosen in honor of Staff Sgt. Ryan Ostrom, who was killed in Afghanistan while serving with the Army National Guard. Sgt. Ostrom was from Liberty, PA. This year’s top female cadet is Sarah Cornish from Coudersport, PA. Sarah is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Cornish.

The top male cadet is chosen in honor of Trooper Joseph Welsh from the Mansfield, PA barracks, who was killed in the line of duty. This year’s top male winner is Jeremiah Rumsey from the Westfield Area. Jeremiah is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Rumsey.

This year’s Camp Cadet turned out to be a wonderful and life changing experience for the sixty-five young cadets who attended and stayed with it throughout the program. Not everyone ends up staying, even with efforts of the officers encouraging them to stay.

The first two days can be quite an adjustment period for the young people who attend. But those who persevere gain an experience that will that will last a life time. Students are exposed to crime scene investigation procedures, the proper way to fire a weapon (with laser shooters), and room inspections just to name a few Camp Cadet events. They are also visited by EMS, FBI, State Police, Medevac Helicopter Crews, The Road Dawgs—a police officer motorcycle club—as well as other special appearances from people involved in criminal justice.

The Home Page Network would like to thank the amazing people involved in putting on this special program known as Camp Cadet. We are sure that you are making a difference for good in our community. We encourage our Home Page family of viewers to consider next year’s Camp Cadet Program for your sons and daughters, ages twelve and thirteen. It’s the opportunity of a life time. For more information on Camp Cadet, please go to the Northern Tier Camp Cadet Facebook page, or call Tioga County Partnership for Community Health at (570)-723-0520. Thanks for watching. You are greatly appreciated.
