The Cass County COA will once again present Camp Safe Kids.
This year’s edition will be held at the Lowe Center at the COA from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 15.
The camp is free to any 9 to 11 years old in Cass County. It presents children a full day of safety activities presented in a fun and exciting format. The program is limited to 32 children and includes lunch and a free bicycle helmet for every child.
Kids have fun learning basic first aid, internet safety, abduction prevention plus safety lessons on boating, water, bicycle, traffic and fire safety.
“We have found that children learn life-long lessons on safety at this camp,” Deputy MaKenzie Kreiner of the Cass County Sheriff’s Department said. “So many accidents and unsafe behavior can be prevented if kids learn safety in a fun and engaging environment. This program presented by the Cass County COA is a fantastic opportunity.”
The day also includes a demonstration from the canine unit featuring dogs trained as official members of the Cass County Sheriff’s Department. In addition, the fire department will bring its smokehouse to show how easily fires in the home can start and how to prevent them.
Participants in the program include the Cass County Sheriff’s Department, Dowagiac Public Safety and Penn Township Fire Department.
This program fills quickly, so call the Cass County COA today. Reservations are a must. Contact Sandi Hoger at 445-8110.
The Lowe Center is located at 60525 Decatur Road and M-60 in Cassopolis.
