Snow dates are January 11 and January 18. Cost for the radKIDS program is $25 per child. A full refund given once the child completes the course.

The course is a 10-hour family-centered program that emphasizes essential decision-making skills as well as physical resistance options to escape violence. Children 5-13 years of age participate in the program, ideally with their adult partners, to create a true safety partnership. The focus is also on all activities that emphasize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
