Blaine Safety Camp, held in late July, brought 160 fourth graders together for two days of fun and learning. Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death and disabling injury for children under the age of 15. The main goal of Safety Camp is to help reduce the number of accidents and injuries among young children. Safety Camp provides children with the skills necessary to cope with emergency situations. Topics covered at Safety Camp include: animal safety, bullying prevention, drug prevention, electrical safety, fire safety, injury prevention, internet safety, life safety decision making, personal safety, and water safety.
This year marked the 23rd consecutive year that Safety Camp was held for the Blaine community. The program is a collaborative effort between the Blaine Police Department, Blaine Parks and Recreation Department, and the Spring Lake Park-Blaine-Mounds View Fire Department.
