This year marks 47 years in the partnership between the American Legion and the Illinois State Police for the annual American Legion Youth Camp. Illinois State Police Special Agent Melissa Uhles (Yoo-lis) says the camp is for kids with an interest in careers in the military or law enforcement.
Local youth have the opportunity to attend the camp. Clinton Legion Post 103 is looking for local youth interested in law enforcement. Post Commander, Josh Thielen, says they have funds available to send youth from across the area to the camp.
Registration for the American Legion Youth Camp in Springfield is due to the Illinois State Police by Thursday, May 30th. The American Legion Youth Camp will be held at State Police Headquarters June 23rd through June 28th. To learn more, contact the Clinton Legion Post 103 at their Facebook page.
