This event was about camping safely while having fun. A speaker from the Oswego Health Department came in for the first session and talked about tick and mosquito prevention, and for the second session a firefighter came in to talk about fire, and campfire safety. After each session children could do crafts, snacks, sing songs around a campfire, and listen to stories in a tent. 38 children and 26 adults attended.
Many thanks to Walmart and Price Chopper for their donations and support, and to the Oswego Public Library for hosting this event. Thank you to the speakers from the Health Department and the Oswego firefighter. A special thanks to the team members for helping to prepare for this event.
