Today 152 soon-to-be 3rd-graders and their counselors took over Riley Lake Park for this year’s annual Safety Camp.

The counselors, who are members of Eden Prairie’s Police, Fire and Parks and Recreation departments, helped their campers rotate through various safety activities including bullying prevention with CLIMB Theatre, street maintenance safety, Xcel Energy power safety and personal safety.

Tomorrow will be another full day of Safety Camp fun!
