HARRISBURG (KDKA) — Pennsylvania State Police are canceling spring and summer youth camps for the second year in a row.

Volunteers coordinate dozens of youth camps and events across the state each summer, including Camp Cadet programs.

They say even though COVID-19 cases are down, it is still too early to host events like this where social distancing and other safety steps would not be possible.
