As the concern lingers over the two recent coyote attacks in Rye, local camp organizers and parents are putting preventive measures in place to make sure no more incidents occur.
Patch.com talked to the directors of the YMCA camp at Osborn School and the Architectural Camp at the Jay Heritage Center to see what they are doing to make sure campers have a safe, positive summer experience.
The most important advice given to all was to be aware of your surroundings. This became very apparent as we walked a path at the Jay Heritage Center, where we came across a deer bone in the near distance from the main house.
"We are familiar with coyote sightings here at the property, so we know their habits and areas they habituate which we steer clear of," said Suzanne Clary, president of the Jay Heritage Center.
We also went to the Rye Free Reading Room to see how local residents are ensuring their children's safety outdoors.
