Cook Forest State Park Lost in the Woods
Families and child care professionals are encouraged to join park intern, Alicia Shawley, at the Ridge Camp Park Amphitheater to discuss this very important safety topic. Unfortunately, when camping in any forest, the risk of getting lost is always there. It is our goal to help educate our visitors, keep children safe, and to assist Search & Rescue teams in any way possible. The focus of the program will be on children's survival tips (ages 5-12) and family planning strategies. Demonstrations from local Search & Rescue teams will be conducted as well. (Participants should keep in mind that adult survival strategies differ from those suggested for children.) Remember to bring your chairs and blankets.
