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 begins on Monday, March 13, 2017. Registration forms will be available here and at Police Headquarters, located at 300 Country Club Rd, on March 13. Fee is $40 for Eugene city residents, $50 non-resident. Some scholarships for Eugene City residents may be available.
