29th Annual South Central Minnesota Safety Camp Attracts More Than 50 Youth
NORTH MANKATO, MN- The 29th annual South Central Minnesota Safety Camp is underway at the fire station in North Mankato.
The camp takes over 50 third through sixth graders through a number of interactive stations, including bike and first–aid safety.
Emergency personnel from Gold Cross ambulance and North Mankato Police and Fire are helping to lead the camp, giving kids a taste of how safety is incorporated in their jobs on a daily basis.
President of the camp Lisa Alitz says "They are able to walk away thinking 'ok, mom and dad aren't just saying do it this way' because it's mom and dad saying it. However, they have a reason behind doing it and being safe."
The camp costs ten dollars per person and includes breakfast, lunch, a t–shirt and door prizes.
Activities included bike, fire, animal, campfire, firearm and personal safety along with pedal carts, first aid and personal fitness training.
Children also witnessed a K-9 interaction and a drone demonstration.
