NAMPA - A four-day camp, aimed at teaching young students safety and medical skills, wraps up this week.

READYKAMP 2014 was held at Nampa Christian High School and sponsored by the Southwest Idaho Medical Reserve Corps.

Students had the chance to meet Paula McCollom and her canine partner on one day.

An item was hidden and the dog conducted a search following her commands.

During the week of READYKAMP 2014, 6th, 7th and 8th graders learned about fire safety, search and rescue, water rescue, triage and treatment, CPR and much more.

The final day of camp ended with a mock disaster exercise, for students to test all of their skills.
