Kids. Are you pumped for Camp 911?

Posted By on Fri, Jun 1, 2012 at 11:22 AM

Remember when you were around 10 years old and it was summertime? And you were soooooo bored because you'd spent the whole year having so much fun at school learning things and then you were just, like, blaaaaaaah because your mom wouldn't send you to a week-long day camp where you could continue to learn about groovy stuff like fire safety and crime prevention when it was the least she could have done for your little, atrophying brain and body?

No? That's right. All kids want to do during the summer is go swimming and watch "The Price is Right."

But some lucky children of Fulton County employees will be rescued from the monotony of responsibility-free fun to spend 37-and-a-half hours of their summer at Camp 911, a free, week-long day camp sponsored by the Fulton County Police Department, Sheriff's Office, Marshall's Office, and Fire Department ...

Fulton County announces that registration is now open for Camp 911. The week-long camp for children ages 9 to 12 will be held July 23-27, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To be eligible, prospective campers must live in unincorporated Fulton County or be the child of a Fulton County employee.

During Camp 911, campers will learn about topics including fire safety, first aid, and crime prevention through a variety of hands-on activities. Camp sessions will also cover topics such as bullying, self-defense and gang resistance.

The camp will be held at the Fulton County Public Safety Training Center (3025 Merk Road, College Park, GA 30349). Campers are asked to bring their own lunch and snacks. Applications for Camp 911 are available on the Fulton County Police Department website – Campers who meet the above requirements will be admitted on a first-come-first-served basis.

Eh. Pools and the "Price is Right" will be around for the rest of the summer.
