Jump Higher! Trampoline Fun for Kids
While at summer camp, you might want to have some trampoline fun with your friends. You
may have seen circus performers use trampolines.
But these individuals have extensive training on how to properly mount and dismount the
device. When you have never used a trampoline, it is important to follow several safety
guidelines to avoid an injury.
Trampoline Fun Safety for Kids
1. Make Sure There Is a Protective Fence
Today, manufacturers build large trampolines with protective wire mesh fences. These fences
help to keep you on the spongy surface. Never remove the fence and do not try to climb over
2. Have Adult Supervision Nearby
Make sure that one or more adults are nearby while you are using a trampoline. Camp
counselors will monitor everyone’s behavior. And they will be ready to help if anyone is
3. One Person at a Time
Preventing injuries while on a trampoline is very important. Experts recommend that only one

connections such as bolts and screws. Padding is very important in preventing injuries to your
skin or eyes.
8. Keep Away from Tall Objects
To help prevent injuries, do not place a trampoline near tall objects such as trees, power lines
9. Do Not Use a Wet Trampoline
Never use a wet trampoline because it is easier to fall on the slippery surface.
10. Keep a Trampoline Away from Hard Surfaces
Do not place a trampoline on a parking lot or driveway because it can lead to serious injuries.
11. Use Round Trampolines
Round-shaped trampolines are safer than those shaped like a rectangle. Round “tramps” do
not permit you to bounce as high.
12. Do Not Jump Off a Trampoline
Learn how to correctly dismount. Walk to its side before sitting down. Then drop off onto the
