Since 1957, nonprofit organization Ottawa Safety Council has trained Ottawans to safely react to unforeseen accidents and emergencies. Summer Safety Camp immerses young minds in a fun, interactive environment in which skilled instructors train tykes to stay safe at home, in traffic, on the playground, and in antigravity chambers. The instructors teach students to steer clear of wild animals, fires, busy streets, electrical outlets, and other danger zones. Campers stay entertained by participating in games and creating arts and crafts projects. Additionally, Summer Safety Camp imparts safety guidelines by screening educational safety videos and welcoming guest speakers. By the end of camp, children will have learned how to stay safe and protected without the use of bubble wrap.
Ottawa Safety Council
Ottawa Safety Council has enlightened citizens about safety through interactive and informative programs for more than half a century. Starting with a defensive driving course, the council's curriculum blossomed to focus on children's bus safety and then beyond, always keeping in mind the needs and desires of the community. Now, during children's safety programs, kids learn skills such as how to call 911, how to say "No," and how to sound like Clint Eastwood when answering the phone at home alone. Motorcycle rider training equips bikers with defensive tactics when careening along the open road, and the school crossing guards program trains participants on guiding children safely across the street.
