Kid's K.A.M.P!

 The Quad Cities chapter will host a week-long Kid’s K.A.M.P. for kids, ages 5-10, during the following weeks:

March 16-20, 2009
June 15-19, 2009
July 13-17, 2009

K.A.M.P. is held from 9:00 - 3:00 each day and the cost is $15 per day or $75 for the entire week.

During Kid’s K.A.M.P, area youth will enjoy fire safety lessons, a tour of a fire truck, and lessons on nutrition and healthy eating.  The Red Cross will provide lessons on safety skills, first aid, and disaster preparedness and prevention.  The K.A.M.P. will also feature Escape School, a role-play simulation designed to teach children how to escape from abduction and handle approaches from strangers.  The kids will visit an adoptable pet from the Quad City Animal Welfare Center and learn about animal safety and care.  K.A.M.P. will end with a pizza party and movie on Friday.   

“We have identified an important need in our community for inexpensive, educational day camps for Quad Cities youth.  The children involved in Kids K.A.M.P. benefit from a variety of health and safety activities ranging from how to respond to an emergency at home to how to make healthy snack choices.  I look forward to offering preparedness camps throughout the school year, during holiday break times, and intercessions and summer,” says Kim Crosby, Youth Services Coordinator for the American Red Cross of the Quad Cities Area. 

K.A.M.P. has been featured on KWQC TV6, WQAD TV8, CBS4, KLJB Fox 18, and in the Quad-City Times.  For more information on K.A.M.P. call Kim at (309) 743-2166.
