Evanston Safety Town was founded in 1977 by the Evanston/Skokie District Council of PTAs. 


It is a summer day camp program teaching basic safety rules to 4-7 year olds. If you have an 8 year old who would benefit and wasn't able to attend during the pandemic, please register him/her as well. It has been our experience that children under 4 do not benefit from the program so age 4 by June 1, please. 

  • Crossing the street, riding a bike, swimming, fire prevention, pet safety and more.

  • Police and Fire Department representatives visit.

  • Bike safety is presented by a local store owner.

See the "About Us" page for the curriculum for the topics covered at camp. Experience has taught us that campers will not benefit from the program if they are under the age of 4.

Teen volunteers are an important part of the program as they work with campers in small groups of 2-3 to instruct and encourage. Supervision is provided by a certified teacher and a paid teen assistant.

Please mention the program to your friends and neighbors. We are happy to seat groups together.

You can use this link to pay the $155 fee for campers and the $5 for volunteer t-shirts or avoid the $5 transaction fee by sending a check for $150 to 1003 Dobson, Evanston 60202.
