About the event
Spring Break Camp - April 3-7, 9AM -Noon Each Day at ChildrenConnect Museum
Children, ages 4-8, will learn about safety and emergency readiness with a fun, engaging and immersive experience! Anticipate an exciting lineup of fire safety demonstrations, interactive activities, guided tours of emergency vehicles, and health and safety displays by EMTs. Plus, we'll cover water, energy, and electricity safety, and provide healthy eating and sanitation safety classes.
- EMT-up station: Set up a dress-up station with child-sized EMT uniforms, toy stethoscopes, and other medical equipment. Encourage the children to play and pretend to be EMTs, practicing basic medical techniques and transporting patients to the "hospital" in a toy ambulance.
- Ambulance tour: Arrange for a real ambulance to come to the camp and allow the children to explore inside. Have the EMTs who operate the ambulance talk to the children about what their job entails and answer any questions they may have.
- First aid training: Teach the children some basic first aid techniques such as how to clean and bandage a wound. Have them practice on each other or on stuffed animals. This can help them understand the importance of providing care to those who are injured.
- Obstacle course: Set up an obstacle course that simulates a rescue situation. Have the children work in teams to navigate the course and rescue a "patient" in need of medical attention. This can help them understand the importance of working together and problem-solving in emergency situations.
- Storytelling: Read stories about real-life situations where EMTs were called in to help. Make sure the stories are age-appropriate and highlight the importance of quick response times and the role EMTs play in emergency situations.
- Snack time: Serve healthy snacks such as fruit and vegetables in the shape of medical equipment, such as sliced cucumbers as stethoscopes and carrot sticks as syringes.
- Craft station: Set up a craft station where the children can create their own ambulance using cardboard boxes, markers, and stickers. This can be a fun and creative activity that also reinforces what they have learned about EMTs and emergency services.
- Overall, this camp will provide children with a fun and educational experience that will help them understand the importance of emergency medical transit and the role EMTs play in saving lives. The activities are designed to be age-appropriate and engaging, while also teaching important skills and concepts.
