Safety Town is an incredible two-week comprehensive educational program that introduces pre-school children to safety awareness. This exceptional program teaches children entering kindergarten in the fall basic safety awareness and accident prevention through hands-on learning activities.
The life-saving lessons covering topics such as pedestrian, bicycle, school bus, poison, basic fire, gun, home and water safety are presented in age appropriate fashions through instruction, song and hands-on activities. Safety Town students will have an opportunity to explore a police car, police motorcycle, fire truck and school bus and will receive a T-shirt for participation in the program.
Camper registrations are accepted on first come, first served basis.The registration deadline is June 1st. The camp does fill, so sign up soon! http://www.eugene-or.gov/DocumentCenter/View/15418
Safety Town also offers a unique volunteer opportunity for area teens, 13-19 years of age. The Teen volunteers are used as the camp “counselors”. Not only do they have the opportunity to help the pre-Kinder campers learn these important safety lessons, but they get to learn leadership, team-building and job skills. Teens will be required to pass an interview and background check.
The teen volunteer applications are due by May 1st. http://www.eugene-or.gov/DocumentCenter/View/15420
