Camp Bandage

June 4 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Camp Bandage Grand Lake

Camp Bandage 2022 is set for Saturday, June 4th, from Noon to 4 pm at Grand Lake RV Resort in Duck Creek.

Free and open to the public, the fifth annual safety camp and kids’ fun fair teaches children of all ages how to be safe in their daily lives.

A number of groups and organizations will be on hand during the event to educate children and demonstrate a wide variety of safety topics to them in a fun and diverse environment.

During Camp Bandage, children will learn about safe outdoor recreation, water safety, health, first aid, weather, fire safety, injury and substance abuse prevention, and more.

They will also have the opportunity to meet and interact with first responders from the Grand Lake area, including fire, police, and EMTs, as well as explore helicopters, fire trucks, police cars, ambulances, patrol boats, cranes, and a fireboat.

In addition to the many safety classes, demonstrations, and hands-on activities, the fun will also include karaoke, dancing, and games.

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, everything is free at Camp Bandage – Grand Lake, including admission, prizes, hot dogs, and drinks. T-shirts will be given away to the first 500 children who arrive at Camp Bandage.

“A community outreach project of this magnitude fits right in with our existing substance abuse prevention program, GaDuGi,” said Jennifer Hinson, Grand Nation executive director.

“For instance, we’re trying to promote Responsible Recreation on the lake. Camp Bandage – Grand Lake teaches kids about being safe on the water, as well as being safe at home. It’s an obvious platform where we could impact hundreds of kids in one day. This was an opportunity we didn’t want to pass up.”

Camp Bandage – Grand Lake will once again be hosted by Grand Lake RV Resort at 31527 South 4510 Road, Afton, Okla., on Duck Creek.

“Camp Bandage is an awesome safety program for kids with lots of activities for learning,” said Dianna McIntyre, owner, and operator of Grand Lake RV Resort. “We thoroughly enjoy it and think it’s a wonderful experience.”

ABOUT CAMP BANDAGE
Camp Bandage was started in Broken Arrow by Dr. A.L. Gerner and his wife, Shirley, in 1983, as a one-day event designed to educate the community on how common accidents and injuries can be prevented. For more than 30 years, businesses and organizations across the community have come together each year to teach children everything from injury prevention, first aid and CPR to bike, water, fire and home safety. Each year, the Broken Arrow Police and Fire departments are on hand to simulate responding to a car accident in order to educate the community on how emergency responders work together.
