Eugene Safety Town

We will begin to accept applications for Eugene Safety Town 2016 in early Spring.  
Safety Town is an incredible two week comprehensive educational program that introduces pre-Kindergarten children to safety awareness. Children who will enter Kindergarten in the Fall are eligible to attend this summer camp (sorry, no exceptions). Safety Town is an important experience to help children prepare for their transition to a formal school environment and to make safe decisions as they spend more and more time apart from their parents. This program covers topics such as pedestrian safety, traffic safety, bicycle safety, gun safety, water safety, fire safety, personal safety, poison prevention, water safety, school safety and much, much more!  A certified school teacher provides most of the instruction and is supplemented by community experts and police department staff.

Eugene Police Activities League (EPAL)
This year, Eugene Police Department is unable to host our annual EPAL Camp. This is an unfortunate result of staffing limitations, and one we anticipate being resolved in Summer of 2016. We are very proud of this excellent program, and look forward to its continuation in the future.
