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, 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.
Registration for Eugene Safety Town 2019 is closed. A waiting list has been generated and we will be in touch, if you are on the waiting list and a spot opens for your child. Questions about camper registration should be directed to Jeff Blonde' at 541-682-8332 or Email.

Many resources are available to parents both on the web and at your library. This document is a list of daily topics at Safety Town with some website references to help you get started.

Teen volunteers (ages 13-19) act as camp counselors. This is a fun and educational experience for teens. Training is provided and this is a great way to earn community service hours, required at most high schools. Teen applicants undergo an interview and background process. Teen recruitment is now open and closes on May 1st. Questions about teen recruitment should be directed to Harlow Meno at 541-682-5642 or Email.
