Safety Town is a four-day course teaching children all aspects of child safety both at school and home. Participants will learn about bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, fire safety, playground safety, poison control, snake and animal safety, stranger danger and what to do if they find a gun or another weapon. The children are instructed and practice how to cross the street safely. During the week, daily speakers, games and events will lead up to a Thursday graduation ceremony.

Participation fee is $10 for the entire program. The course offers a daily snack, but you may choose to send a snack with your child if they have dietary restrictions. Children are required to wear comfortable athletic shoes, no flip flops are allowed.
