Abstract The purpose of this 3-year, multi-site evaluation research was to examine the effectiveness of farm safety day camps organized and delivered through five Farm Safety 4 Just Kids (FS4JK) chapters in different regions of the nation. The locations of the chapters included in the study encompassed a variety of agricultural commodities and farm compositions. The specific aim was to evaluate whether the camps positively influenced: (1) children's knowledge about farm safety and health, their safety attitudes, and subsequent safety behaviors; and (2) parent's attitudes and behavior toward children's farm safety behavior. In addition, the effect of the camps on the local community was assessed. This research was grounded in the social-ecological framework of McLeroy and colleagues (1988) and in the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health Training Intervention Effectiveness Research (TIER) Model.
