Police Events and Camps
Eugene Safety Town
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.
Camper registration for Safety Town 2017 will begin in early March. Please continue to follow this page for updates.
Teen volunteers (ages 13-19) act as camp counselors. This is a fun and educational experience for teens. Training is 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 for Safety Town 2017 will also begin in early March.
