Summer Camp for Explorer Scouts

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA With numerous complaints about lack of after-school activities, the Orange County Law Enforcement Explorer Advisor Association (OCLEEAA) is hosting a Explorer Summer Academy August 1-5, 2010 at the BSA Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center in Orange

The Explorer Scouts are committed to law enforcement, the Explorer Academy is an abbreviated version of a regular Law Enforcement Academy and the Explorers are housed and fed in dorms at the Outdoor Education Center

According do the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, nearly 200 Explorer Scouts from Orange and Los Angeles Counties will be getting a taste of police work this week, with demonstrations by SWAT, a K-9 unit and a Helicopter Unit.  The Explorers will learn to handle situations under stressful conditions.  They are also challenged physically with running, push-ups and other activities.   The Explorers will also attend classes, including Driving Under the Influence, Traffic Accident Investigations, Gang Investigations, Criminal Law, Ethics and other Law Enforcement classes. 

The program is sponsored by the Orange County Law Enforcement Explorer Advisor Association (OCLEEAA). 

The Tactical Officers for the Academy are Explorer Advisors (Officers and Deputies) from agencies belonging to OCLEEAA.

Explorers who successfully complete the Academy will graduate on Thursday August 5, 2010, 6:00 PM at the Sheriff’s Regional Academy in Tustin, at which time numerous awards will be presented.
