    You might be wondering where to start and how much work is involved. You likely have other questions too:

    • Where do I start?
    • Exactly what am I getting into by agreeing to be a coordinator, volunteer or presenter?
    • How much will a farm safety day camp cost?
    • Where do I find presenters?
    • Where should I hold the day camp?
    • Where do I find resources for the day camp?
    • What guidelines and instructions are needed to ensure that instructors give correct farm safety messages?
    • What is a coordinator responsible for?
    • When should I hold the day camp?
    • What age should attend?
    • What should be given to the children to take home?
    This guide has been put together to help you answer these questions. It is based on the experiences of many other day camps organized by people just like you in communities all across Alberta. You can be sure these methods are tried and true!
