MHS Students Volunteer with Pennsylvania State Police Sunny Day Camp
On Saturday, Sept. 8, sixteen Milton Hershey School students volunteered their time at the Pennsylvania State Police Sunny Day Camp through the Law, Public Safety, and Security career pathway in the school’s Career and Technical Education program.
Sunny Day Camp is a one-day event for children and adults with special needs. Members of the Pennsylvania State Police and other law enforcement professionals donate their off-duty time to serve as camp counselors. MHS students assisted troopers with setup, helped at various stations, played games with the campers, and served as camp buddies throughout the event.
“Our students had the opportunity to put leadership into action by encouraging children and adults to enjoy learning about the Pennsylvania State Police and law enforcement,” said Paul Gaspich, MHS Law, Public Safety, and Security Instructor. “Our students closely interacted with state troopers throughout the day, enhancing their professional development and relationships with law enforcement.”
Milton Hershey School’s award-winning Career and Technical Education program prepares students to graduate both college and career ready. Through activities like Sunny Day Camp, students are able to gain valuable real-life experiences.
