Safety Camp 2019
Yesterday and today, 147 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 their campers rotate through various safety activities, including personal safety, bullying prevention, power line safety, internet safety, animal safety, bike safety, fire safety, street maintenance vehicle safety and aquatics 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 favorites counselors.
Thanks to everyone who helped make the 29th annual Eden Prairie Safety Camp a huge success!
