Lake Perris Aquatic Adventure Camp
By teaching water safety to children at the 2016 Aquatic Adventure Camp (AAC) at Lake Perris, DWR helps keep children safe at its State Water Project reservoirs. DWR in partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation offered a 10-day program from July 11 to 22 focusing on educating children ages 7-15 about water safety and the steps to take during an emergency. Activities include life jacket safety, basic first aid training, water sports such as kayaking and snorkeling and lessons on physical health and fitness. The free AAC program offers sessions each year for up to 75 randomly selected children to participate. Water safety information available here.
