Welcome to the 43rd summer of Evanston Safety Town.
This is a summer day camp program for 4-7 year olds teaching basic safety rules for crossing the street, riding a bike, swimming, fire prevention, pet safety and more. Police and fire department representatives are invited to visit camp. Bike safety is presented by a local store owner. A trained animal therapist brings her dog.
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 in small groups of 3 or 4 to instruct and encourage. Supervision is provided by a certified teacher who has been with the program for 5 years and an adult assistant.
Please mention the program to your friends and neighbors. We are happy to seat groups together.
