What is Safety Town?
Safety Town is a one-week program designed to teach kids about safety. Children ages 5 and 6 attend for 2 hours per day one week during the summer where they learn safety principles from local experts. The program was created to teach important, life-long lessons about safety. This safety program is held each summer for children entering kindergarten or first grade in the upcoming fall school year.
Throughout the years, the program’s curriculum has changed to reflect new safety concerns in our society. The program now includes pedestrian safety, internet safety, bike/scooter safety, stranger danger, drug awareness, fire safety, anti-bullying and more. Each topic covered during the program is designed to provide an exciting and effective hands-on learning environment.
Throughout the week session, stories, games, songs, and videos reinforce the safety skills being taught. By using a "hands-on" approach, children absorb important information and have fun at the same time. The City of St. George Leisure Services, teen volunteers and other community groups help teach safety awareness and prevention to our campers.
