Youth learn safety during day camp activity

On Friday morning, June 12, 21 children in first  through fourth grade attended the “Safety Survivor Day Camp” hosted by Rock County 4-H.

Children participated in several activities to learn about four basic areas of safety.

Activities included learning about germs and proper hand-washing techniques, making a first-aid kit and practicing the basics about cardio pulmonary resuscitation or CPR, finding common safety hazards on a farm, making a healthy snack and learning about fire safety from local volunteer firefighters.
