Safety Camp Mascots - Smokey the Bear, Patriotic Dog and Crime Dog

HEY KIDS! On Tuesday, July 11, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. there will be a Chisago County Safety Camp held at Camp Ojiketa in Chisago City. This one-day camp is brought to you by the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, Lakes Area Police Department, Chisago City Fire Department, Lindstrom Fire Department, Lakes Region EMS, M Health Fairview, Peterson Companies, Life Link and East Central Energy. It is open to children who have completed 3rd, 4th or 5th grade, and also reside in Chisago County. This one-day camp is FREE!

Registration is required and limited to the first 60 participants. Children must have completed 3rd, 4th or 5th grade, and also reside within Chisago County in order to attend Safety Camp. Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, May 30, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. However, last year our registration filled up in 3 hours!

Please note: The registration link will NOT work until we open registration on Monday, May 8, 2023 at 8:00 a.m.  

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of serious injury and/or death in children. This camp, taught by those who respond to injury related incidents, is designed to teach children how to stay safe in a variety of situations with the goal of reducing the number of injuries that occur each year. 

The camp includes sessions on:

  • bike safety,
  • fire safety,
  • 911 procedure, 
  • personal safety, and 
  • first-aid.

The knowledge and skills campers learn will allow them to make the right decisions when faced with unsafe conditions now and in the future.

An informational packet will be sent out via email to all registered participants approximately one week prior to camp with check-in information and a list of things to bring to camp. Camp includes a t-shirt, bike helmet, a snack, games, and giveaways!

Campers will need to bring a bag lunch and a bike.
