York County's Award-Winning "Safety Town" Program Registration Now Open
Registration for the 26th session of York County's award-winning "Safety Town" program, which teaches pre-kindergartners various aspects of life safety, is open to all York County and Non-York County Residents. Registration is available online by visiting www.yorkcounty.gov/parksandrec. The cost is $35 for County residents and $50 for non-County residents.
This summer program seeks to reduce childhood injury by introducing children to basic safety concepts through the use of interactive experiences. Safety Town is open to children entering Kindergarten in the fall. Set up to resemble a small-scale "town," with portable buildings, roads, and street signs, the appealing "Safety Town" learning environment is used as a practice area for several safety lessons.
Each session lasts one week, running Monday through Thursday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. All lessons and activities relate to a specific topic each day: Traffic and Pedestrian Safety, Fire Safety, Home Safety, and Personal Safety. Due to the changing situation with COVID-19, the program may be modified. If the program is cancelled for any reason, a full refund will be issued.
The schedule for the 26th session of Safety Town is:
July 13 - July 16 Mt. Vernon Elementary School
July 20 - July 23 Mt. Vernon Elementary School
July 27 - July 30 Waller Mill Elementary School (Williamsburg)
