Legionville School Safety Patrol Training Center
Legionville is a training center for Minnesota school patrol and bus patrol officers. While safety training is the primary program, students will also be attending classes in first aid, canoeing, and swimming. Also, necessary recreation and athletics are woven into the daily activities to insure a diversity of the total program and each session kept interesting. Americanism, good citizenship, and sportsmanship are encouraged in a pleasant and entertaining manner.
The following is an example of a normal daily schedule at Legionville:
*NOTE: The four classes that Patrol campers attend during the morning are Pedestrian Safety, First Aid, Canoeing, and Swimming.
*NOTE: Alumni Campers will have a slightly different schedule and set of classes.
Legionville is a training center with a definite purpose. Safety training is emphasized in a manner which is readily accepted and retained by the youngsters. At the end of the week the Minnesota Highway Patrol Safety Officer will give each student an examination covering the school patrol and safety lessons taught while at the training center. Each youngster who completes the program and passes the examination will receive a Certificate of Graduation in recognition of completion.
After spending a week at Legionville, our hope is that each camper will return to their community as a dedicated and well-trained school patrol member.
