EAU CLAIRE, Wis. –– Children can have fun and learn about safety at free camps offered by Mayo Clinic Health System in Barron and Eau Claire.
Safety Camp participants will learn from health care providers and other local experts about many safety topics, including first aid, fire, seat belts, boating, animals, weather and more. Children are supervised at all times. Lunch and snacks are provided, and each camper will receive a Safety Camp T-shirt.
“The planning team works hard to make sure Safety Camp is full of games, laughter and general silliness,” says Kim Strasburg, a Mayo Clinic Health System trauma nurse. “It’s a high-energy and fun way for children to learn about safe decisions and actions.”
- Barron: Children entering third, fourth and fifth grades this fall attend from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 9, at Anderson Park, N. Third St. Register by June 1.
- Eau Claire: Children entering fourth or fifth grade this fall attend from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, July 25 and 26, at Carson Park, 199 Carson Park Drive. Register by July 14.
