Youth safety day camps help kids stay safe

In June 2002, Daniels, McCone, Roosevelt and Sheridan Counties held Youth Safety Day Camps to teach school-age kids about safe environments and the safe use of equipment. They learned about gun safety, fire and fireworks, sun safety, lawn mowers, animal safety, electrical safety, ATV safety, tractor safety, seat belts, basic first aid and 911 emergency procedures. Local volunteers taught the 10 mini-sessions.
The safety lessons appear to be making a difference. One mother said "my two boys went home and told their Grandma and Grandpa everything they learned. Today (six months later) they are still reminding us of the things they learned."
The 214 youth that attended received a T-shirt, lunch and a safety packet. The Youth Safety Day Camps are co-sponsored by county 4-H Councils.
The programs of the MSU Extension Service are available to all people regardless of race, creed, color, sex, disability or national origin. Issued in furtherance of cooperative extension work in agriculture and home economics, acts of May 8 and June 30, 1914, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, LeRoy Luft, Interim Vice Provost and Director, Extension Service, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 59717.
