Cobb, Marietta police to host Rad Kids summer camp

The Cobb and Marietta police departments will join forces with Cobb County Safety Village to host the first-ever Rad Kids Summer Camp.

Rad Kids is a safety program to educate children about personal empowerment. Some of the topics covered include how to prevent bullying and staying safe on the internet or at home, school, in a vehicle or outdoors. 

Instructors will also cover various tricks used by predators, and teach children techniques they can use to fight off possible abduction attempts. 

The camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 10-13 at Cobb County Safety Village. The cost is $80, and the camp will be divided into two groups: children who are 5 to 7 year old and youngsters aged 8 to 12. 

You can register 5 to 7 year old children by clicking here. Registration for 8 to 12 year old kids is available at this link.
