Woodbury Public Safety put safety lessons into practice last week.

The annual Youth Safety Camp was held July 22-23 at Carver Lake Park.

During the Woodbury Parks and Recreation-sponsored camp, counselors — madeup of police officers, paramedics, firefighters and recreation specialists — taught campers safety tips in a fun, interactive way. 

Some of the safety lessons during this year’s camp included: archery safety, fire and smoke safety, water safety, hands-only CPR, seat belt safety, bike safety, Internet safety and martial arts.

To add to the fun, the camp also brought in a few specialty demonstrations and activities including the Woodbury K-9 unit, the Minnesota Zoo’s Zoomobile and a spray-down by the fire hose.
