Over the next two weeks, area kids will have the opportunity to learn some valuable safety lessons and have some fun all at the same time.
Belmont Community Hospital is hosting a Kids Safety Camp. It’s for children between the ages of four and six.
Hospital officials and volunteers will be teaching a number of safety lessons including bike safety, how to react to strangers as well as crossing the street.
Later in the week, there will be a smokehouse with visits from the local fire and departments. departments.
“I think this is so important to get these kids involved in the safety aspect of it because I think a lot of kids don’t that help. They don’t get shown those things. It’s important for them when they are out on the street by themselves to look for cars both ways, to stop at the crosswalk, to stop at the red light,” said Safety Camp Coordinator at Belmont Community Hospital, Sheri Harvey.
The camp runs through next week.
There will be a graduation ceremony at the end and all kids will receive a free t-shirt and helmet.
