Kids from the areas of Kentucky State Police Post 15, in Columbia and Kentucky State Police Post 4 in Elizabethtown, visited Trooper Island July 11-15. Approximately 80 campers engaged in positive and proactive activities while attending.-

“Trooper Island Kid’s 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. Spearheaded by former State Police Director, Colonel James E. Bassett, the idea was to establish a permanent recreational site where trooper and child could share a week long experience. A location was selected in a secluded corner of Dale Hollow Lake near the Cumberland and Clinton County line, where an island was leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and a non-profit charitable corporation was formed”
