“SAFETY TOWN” is an early childhood education program designed to introduce children to all types of safety behavior through their own involvement. They do this by role-playing in simulated and actual life situations under the guidance of teachers, a police officer and student volunteers. Safety songs, poems, art projects, stories, movies and visits with Police and Fire Departments and First Aid Squads make this program a fun learning experience that children eagerly look forward to attending.
SPACE IS LIMITED TO 50 STUDENTS!
The 2018 Safety Town Camp will be held from Monday, July 16 through Thursday, July 26 at the River Vale Community Center at 628 Rivervale Road. The cost is $65 per camper. Registration will be available ONLINE ONLY via Community Pass from April 1 through June 1.
