ATCO Gas Lost Kids Program
At every entrance to the Stampede, parents can pick up an ATCO Gas Lost Kids bracelet tag from a volunteer. Put your on-Park contact information on the tag then attach it to your child. If you’re separated during your time on the Park, a volunteer will take your youngster to the ATCO Gas Lost Kids Centre next to the Agriculture Building. They’ll be cared for while we try to contact you. ATCO Gas has proudly been reuniting little cowboys and cowgirls with their parents since 1993!
