INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Explorer Post 3604 recently attended Camp Wilderness near Park Rapids. The three-day event brought the International Falls post together with law enforcement Explorer posts from Grand Forks, West Fargo and Minot, North Dakota. Explorers at the camp participated in a variety of challenges aimed at strengthening confidence and team building. Activities included rock climbing, a high ropes course with zip line, and rifle shooting. International Falls was represented by Gunnar Mason, Tylor Hanson, and Nathan McRoberts.
The Explorer program is a branch of Boy Scouts of America, which allows teenagers to explore law enforcement career options. Post 3604 focuses on law enforcement and is sponsored by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Post 3604 was formed last year last year with seven students attending classes throughout the year learning about law enforcement. The seven students will be graduating on July 8 with a ceremony in Smokey Bear Park.
Explorer Post 3604 invites the public to come learn about the explorer program and to celebrate with the new graduates. The graduation ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m. with a meet and greet beginning at 10 a.m.
