Safety Town is a one week, summer safety camp where four through nine-year-olds learn safety procedures through their own involvement. Under the guidance of a licensed teacher, students work in teen-led small groups to practice and experience "real life" situations before they are confronted with them on their own. This program offers children a classroom segment, as well as a hands-on experience on the streets of the specially designed, child-sized "Safety Town."
Child Passenger Safety
Child Passenger Safety is a large part of CCS since 4 out of 5 car seats are installed incorrectly - regardless of parent’s age, education or income. To help ensure your child's safety while traveling by car, we host free monthly check-up events at area car dealerships as well as free 1-on-1 appointments at our office. Seats are assessed for age, proper fit of your child in the seat, proper fit of the seat in the vehicle, recalls, and structural integrity.
Winners Wear Helmets
The Center for Childhood Safety sponsors “Winners Wear Helmets,” a classroom instruction and interactive field trip event that benefits Green Bay’s at-risk schools. At this event, students are fitted for their own bicycle helmets and complete bicycle safety courses. Over the past 20 years, this event has put helmets on the heads of over 15,000 children.
Our Safe Sleep Community Collaborative ensures that newborns in under-served populations have a place to sleep safely through the distribution of pack-n-plays accompanied by one-on-one safety education. The Safe Sleep program ensures parents aren’t unintentionally harming their children simply due to lack of access of safe sleep infant products.
