Newtown Youth & Family Services' Safety Town Program this Summer

Safety Town Camp - Teaching Kids Important Life-Saving Lessons!

Newtown Youth & Family Services' Safety Town program is a one-week interactive safety education camp developed to teach important life-saving lessons on strangers, traffic, fire, pedestrian, poison, drug, playground, bus and water safety.

Safety Town combines classroom instruction and the use of a miniature town designed to provide a complete hands-on experience. The miniature town has a fire house, police station, library and even features the historic Newtown, CT flag pole. Within this town, there are working traffic lights, crosswalks, bicycle lanes and signs which create an environment for children to practice what they have learned through constructive play.

All safety topics are taught in collaboration with local community and health agencies.
