Eugene Safety Town 2015 - Updated Information

Eugene Safety Town 2015 has been scheduled for:

July 13th - July 24th (Monday - Friday only)
Session I - 9:00am to 11:30am Sorry, Safety Town is now full.
Session 2 - 12:30pm to 3:00pm

At Eugene Christian School, 2895 Chad Drive
 
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.

Campers:  Camper registration begins on March 2, 2015.  Registration fee is $40 Eugene City resident, $50 non resident.  Some scholarships for Eugene City residents may be available.


Teen volunteers needed:
Teen volunteers (ages 13-19) are needed to act as camp counselors.  This is a fun and educational experience for teens.  Training will be provided and this is a great way to earn community service hours, required at most high schools.  Teen applicants undergo an interview and background process. Teen recruitment will also begin on March 2, 2015. The deadline for teen volunteer applications has been extended to May 15.

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.
