Yesterday and today, 181 campers 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 campers rotate through various activities, including personal safety, bullying prevention, power line safety, internet safety, animal safety, bike safety, fire safety, street maintenance vehicle safety and aquatics safety.
