There are 50 kids in the cadet program, plus four returning senior cadets who are taking part in the week long camp. This year there is a little sibling rivalry.
“No pressure but my interview was really good Senior Cadet Zupon,” said Carson Zupon, cadet. “I am trying to get top cadet.”
The 13 year old gave his older brother Austin a little challenge.
“It’s different to see him go through what I went through,” said Senior Cadet Zupon.
"It's outstanding,” said Trooper Scott Urban. “Obviously the younger Zupon took right to this from his older brother- he came in prepared and it's going well."
The cadets spent the morning at the Ebensburg Airport off of Route 22. They were able to test out the radar guns State Police use. It’s one of several training events they will take part in that troopers do in real life.
The camp is free to all cadets and is made possible through donations and fundraising from the community. Listed below is all of the sponsors and supporters of the camp. Graduation is set for Saturday.
