Safety Camp – Day 2

Bike safety and puddles

A little rain and some clouds couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the Safety Camp campers and counselors at Riley Lake Park on the second day of Safety Camp!

Today the kids brought their bikes and practiced bike safety while dodging puddles in the park. They also visited the Fire Department’s escape house, participated in an agility race, and learned about sea tbelt safety and positive nutrition choices. In addition, campers had a chance to meet EPPD K-9 Jace, and his partner Officer Jenny Ficcadenti, who talked to the campers about animal safety.

Tonight the campers and their parents will attend a graduation ceremony where they will watch a video of their camp adventures and take photos with their favorite counselors.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the 28th annual Safety Camp a huge success!
