RCMP offering boot camp for seniors in October

There are no push-ups involved, but the Seniors Boot Camp taking place early next month hopes to fill seniors full of information and resources with help of the Comox Valley RCMP.

Const. Don Sinclair with the RCMP explained he first came up with the idea for the camp and approached Berwick Comox Valley for assistance.

“We wanted to combine a bunch of ideas over the course of three days,” said Sinclair. “There is no charge, but it’s a first-come, first-served (registration).”

Topics include scams and frauds; staying safe at home and when travelling; how to keep your licence and drive safer; road safety; dialling 9-1-1 and more.

Sinclair said there has never been a camp like this for seniors in the Valley previously, and hopes people will take advantage.

There is room for up to 70 people, and the camp runs Oct. 6, 7, and 8 at the Berwick, 1700 Comox Ave., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
