About this event

What is Camp911?

Camp 911 Delta County focuses on hands-on fun that will help the kids learn what to do if they’re the first one on the scene of an emergency.

Camp 911 Delta County is an interactive introduction to Emergency Medical Services designed for youth finishing or beginning the sixth grade. At Camp 911 Delta County, youth learn how to prevent common traffic and home injuries as well as how to give simple, life-saving emergency care to injured victims. Information will be presented about careers in EMS, emergency nursing and public safety. There will be plenty of hands-on fun and experience.

Camp 911 Delta County is a two-day camp. Attendance is limited to 80 campers on a first-come, first-served basis. Beverages, snacks and lunch are provided and each camper receives a Bystander Care Kit, Camp 911 T-shirt, information packet and a certificate of completion and the camper's household will receive an emergency preparedness pack.

Camp 911 is FREE to campers! The cost is underwritten by local organizations, agencies and donations.

The camp also focuses on how to avoid high-risk behaviors so that campers don’t become the person needing the help.

Campers can look forward to:

  • Tour of EMS, police, fire rescue vehicles and equipment
  • Injury Prevention: Traffic Safety/Rollover Convincer
  • Extrication demonstration (Jaws of Life)
  • Load-and-Go demonstration
