Every year, thousands of children die in potentially dangerous situations from firearms accidents to swim time at the local pool. There's one local camp that's aimed at teaching kids how to escape those dangers. The Caddo Sheriff's Office Youth Firearms Safety Education Camp is underway this week, where dozens of kids will learn basic first aid, firearms safety, and how to resist strangers.
Corporal April Kelly says the camp is a good outlet for kids who may not learn the skills otherwise, especially during the summer.. "Some of them are not involved in a lot of camps and most of them are just, probably hanging out at friends' houses or they're just doing, not school productive things," she said.
The camp's final day is Friday. The Sheriff's Office will also hold a CSI camp in July.
