Kentucky State Police Hosting Virtual Trooper Island For FREE Kids (VIDEOS)
The Kentucky State Police will be hosting a Virtual Trooper Island for kids this year. Get your kiddos registered for the fun.
According to the Kentucky State Police;
Trooper Island Camp was developed by the Kentucky State Police as part of a long-range program of public service to the youth of Kentucky: a place where the tensions and turmoil of our everyday lives can be forgotten; and for one-week young people can be given a touch of hope and desire of a better tomorrow.
Its development came from former State Police Director, Colonel James E. Bassett. The idea was to give kids who might not otherwise have the opportunity, personal interaction with troopers in a positive setting where they can share a week-long experience.
Trooper Island is usually located at Dale Hallow Lake close to Cumberland and Clinton County, where an island was leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and a non-profit charitable corporation was formed.
