Trooper Island Camp, located on Dale Hollow Lake near the Clinton-Cumberland County line, is a co-ed camp serving approximately 700 boys and girls ages 10 to 12. These students are selected by Kentucky State Police troopers to attend a free weeklong camp during the summer months.

The camp was developed by the Kentucky State Police in 1965 as part of a long-range program of public service to the youth of Kentucky.

The Trooper Island Scholarship fund helps prior campers continue their education. Two scholarships are given annually by the Trooper Island Board of Directors from applications received by high school seniors who plan to attend college or technical/vocational school.

The deadline to apply is April 1. For more information, contact Camp Director/Commander Sgt. Craig Sutton, P.O. Box 473, Albany KY 42602; (270) 433-5422.
