Campers and staff are encouraged to join this national initiative to emphasize the importance of using an AED during a cardiac emergency. View press release.

Participate in the AED Scavenger Hunt

The CCF Camp AED Scavenger Hunt is fun and easy! Find an AED at your camp and take a selfie with the AED. Then post the photo with the hashtag #mycampAED, along with the camp name and AED location on social media outlets (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter).
