City Camp Week 9 – Heros

What a fun and busy week! Campers enjoyed learning what it means to be a hero, visiting real-life heroes, and finding out more about our ultimate Hero, Jesus. Thanks to the Kansas City Fire Department for bringing their fire trucks by to let the kids check them out and for letting us come tour the Northeast and Westport stations. The kids loved getting to see what life is like at the fire station—thanks for being so welcoming and sharing with them!
Thanks also to the Kansas City Police Department for allowing us to tour the Metro Patrol Division. Our campers were so excited to see the holding cells and the SWAT vehicles, and to meet one of the accelerant detection dogs in-training! We appreciate them taking the time to answer our many, many questions and showing us around!
We visited Safety Street again and learned about fire safety and 911. We also had a guest speaker, Kevin Horner, who joined us to share his anti-bullying presentation—thanks for helping our kids learn how to be heroes and help each other!
We wrapped up our week with a fieldtrip to Clay County Parks & Rec where the kids took classes on archery, fishing, reptiles and amphibians, and mammals of Missouri. Thanks for a day packed with learning and fun at the lake!
