Williamsburg Wal-Mart Donates to Trooper Island Camp
Date of News Release: 12/11/2008
The donation will help campers from the Williamsburg / Whitley County areas attend the summer camp, which is absolutely free to boys and girls ages 10 to 12.
Trooper Island Camp was created on Dale Hollow Lake in 1965 by the Kentucky State Police, to provide a free summer camp to kids who's financial situation makes it to where they cannot attend another summer camp.
Trooper Island campers spend a week of fishing, swimming, boating, canoeing and many more activities, while being in a safe environment and interacting with Troopers from their area.
The Kentucky State Police is the only State Police agency in the nation to provide a summer camp for kids and realize that it would not be possible if not for supporters like Wal-Mart.
