Disaster Camp    

What to expect:

Disaster camp is a week-long 1/2 day camp geared toward students who will be entering the seventh and eighth grade in the fall. The camp incorporates computer technology, science, and all types of disasters, as well as individual disaster planning, first aid, CPR and coping strategies. The camp finale will be an earthquake simulation.

Activities include games in which campers can win disaster preparedness supplies, like a shower in a bag, and making disaster kits that they will take home.

The camp will be led by the Regional Center for Disaster Preparedness Education at Arkansas State University.
