Kids offered ‘Safety Town’ camp


Registration is now open for Evanston Safety Town, a summer day camp program for 4 through 6 year olds.

Established in 1977 by the Evanston/Skokie Council of PTAs, the not-for-profit program teaches safety rules in a fun-filled setting.

Classroom activities use videos, books and projects. Safety rules are reinforced with practice on the child-size Safety Town on the playground that includes buildings, “cars” (big wheel bikes) and bicycles from home.

Campers attend either the two-hour morning or afternoon sessions for two weeks in June and July at Lincolnwood School, 2600 Colfax St.

There’s a fee of $110 each two-week session and partial scholarships are available.

Sessions begin on June 17, June 29 and July 13 at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

More information is available online.
