The cost to attend Safety Town 2018 will increase to $110 on May 1! Each year, the summer safety camp teaches safety skills to about 200 local children.
The Center for Childhood Safety’s Safety Town, sponsored by Prevea Health and HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital, is a week-long summer program for children ages 4 to 9 where they learn and practice safety skills under the guidance of licensed teachers and trained professionals. The program includes classroom segments, guest presenters, and hands-on experience on the streets of the child-sized Safety Town complete with buildings, roads, pavement marking, traffic signals, and street signs. Safety topics covered include bicycle, pedestrian, poison, electric, pet, playground, fire, car seat, bus, and more!
Each session meets Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Elmore Elementary.
Children ages 4 to 6 can be registered for Safety Town and children ages 7 to 9 can be registered for Safety Town 2. The cost is $90 per child before May 1 or $110 after May 1. Scholarships are available for qualifying families. Register at www.ccsgb.org.
We’re also looking for teen volunteers and program sponsors. For additional information about Safety Town, please contact Emily Gossens at email@example.com.
