BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Young campers in Bainbridge now have the skills to shoot a gun safely.

Kids from the Jack Wingate Camp joined Bainbridge Public Safety officers at their firing range Friday.

The campers got one-on-one time with the officers, learning how to handle a weapon safely.

Camp director Joey Lee said there are no better teachers than these officers.

“These guys are trained. They've had more training than anyone else in town,” said Lee.  “They love to work with the kids and we don’t have to beg them to come out.  They look forward to it every year.”

Lee said most people in south Georgia will handle a gun at some point and should learn gun safety early on.
