Red Cross gives safety education with kids summer camp

July 17th, 2008 · No Comments · Community, Education

Emergencies aren’t fun, but for children, learning to deal with them can be. The Greater Long Beach Chapter (GLBC) of the American Red Cross is offering a two-day SAFE Kids Summer Day Camp that teaches life-saving skills to children ages 7 to 12.
Taught by specially trained GLBC Staff and Youth volunteers, SAFE Kids’ lessons are presented in an interactive environment with hands-on activities and games. Lessons include: emergency preparedness, basic first aid, bicycle and pedestrian safety, basic water safety, and stranger/abduction awareness. This training will earn Boy Scouts their Readyman Badge and Girl Scouts their First Aid Badge.
The camp fee is $50 per child and includes a camp T-shirt, a reference book, safety supplies, and a pizza lunch both days. The camp is from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily at the Will J. Reid Scout Camp, 4747 Daisy Avenue and the session will be August 26-27.
To register your child for a session, call (562) 490-4014 or visit www.thebigbeach.net. Space is limited.
