Camp Save a Life Provides Youth With Safety and First Aid Skills

A licensed attorney in Pennsylvania, Adam Rosengard offers representation in a variety of practice areas. Outside of working for his firm, Adam Rosengard enjoys camping, and occasionally volunteers for the American Red Cross, which offers a free camping program for youth in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Camp Save a Life offers annual week-long camping sessions over the summer months for youth ages 10 through 14, providing them opportunity to learn valuable new skills. Participants learn the elements of disaster preparedness and leadership. In addition, the camp provides CPR and first-aid training aimed at official certification. The camp is designed to deliver these skills in an educational and enjoyable environment.

Camp activities are held at the Red Cross House from morning to mid-afternoon. All participants in the week-long sessions receive daily lunch and a snack. If all spots are filled, parents can contact the program’s volunteer and youth service manager to place their children on a waiting list.

The 2014 camping period included seven sessions during June, July, and August. To read more about Camp Save a Life and see details on future camping periods, visit the program’s webpage at redcross.org/pa/philadelphia/local-services/youth-preparedness/camp-save-a-life.
