On August 16th 2018, local service providers will be gathered and offering a Summer Safety Camp
for area youth. The one-day camp will be completely free to participants ages 8-14. Safety
Camp check-in will begin at 0900am in the IRA Civic Center. Participants will be split into
groups and will rotate through different safety presentation stations about the Grand Rapids IRA
Civic Center. Presenters will include Grand Rapids Police, Grand Rapids Fire, Itasca County
Sheriff Department, Itasca County Search and Rescue, Meds-1 Ambulance Service, Grand
Rapids Public Utilities, Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Natural Resources, and Itasca
County Public Health. Such presentations will revolve around safety concerns for youth and the
services provided by each of the presenting entity. Numerous agencies will showcase multiple
vehicles, tools, and technologies utilized in the field. Such presentations will be held in the east
venue of the Civic Center or the outdoor pavilion. Due to indoor accommodations, this event
will continue rain or shine.
Lunch will be provided at no cost to all participants and volunteers.
Event flyers and registration forms can be located by visiting City of Grand Rapids MN Police
Facebook and Itasca County Sheriff Facebook. 
It is the intention of the collaboration that this will be an annual event that is focused on
educating area youth and strengthen relations between presenting professionals and the
community each entity serves.
