The annual Camp Cadet program is under way at Camp Seph Mack near Yellow Creek State Park.

The program started Sunday and continues through Friday. Area children between 13 and 15 years old participate in the program, meant for young people to get an inside look at law enforcement and the military and learn about possible careers in those fields.

Cadets work with law enforcement members, emergency responders and representatives of other investigative agencies to learn investigation techniques, navigate obstacle courses and explore a variety of law-enforcement related topics. Camp leaders will conduct team-building exercises to generate self-confidence and leadership qualities. The camp is physically and mentally challenging.
