Area youth ages 8 through 17 will have the opportunity to place themselves in shoes of first responders and explore the areas of emergency medical service, law enforcement and fire service as Owens Community College serves as host to Heroes Summer Youth Camp, July 30-Aug. 1.
The Heroes Summer Youth Camp will take place at the Center for Emergency Preparedness. The college will offer two age-appropriate class sections as part of the three-day camp. Both class sections will take place Tuesday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The first section, for ages 8-12, will explore basic first aid/CPR, introduce attendees to an air ambulance and discuss prevention of head injury and helmet safety.
The second section is for ages 13-17 and will feature similar topics and activities as the younger age group as well as target practice using non-firearm air soft trainers.
Registration for the camp is $130. For more information call (567) 661-2411 or (800) GO-OWENS, ext. 2411.
