Summer Program Child FAQs
Q. Are masks required or recommended to be worn at Safety Town?
A. Everyone who is on the Safety Town property is required to wear a mask to keep everyone as safe as possible. The CDC states that summer camps should have children who are not vaccinated wear masks when outside their household, especially when inside. All staff and community workers will be required to wear masks around the children as well. When we are outside, such as riding the bikes, your child may place their mask below their chin if that is something you feel comfortable with, but it is not something we will announce to all the children. We will try to be outside as much as possible, but some lessons must be inside wearing a mask as a video is being watched. Inside the Safety Town building masks are required to be worn over your mouth and nose.
Q. How do I register my child for the summer of 2021?

Q. How much does the week long program cost?
A. The cost for the 2021 summer program is $55 before 5/14/21 and $70 after 5/14/21. Scholarships are available based on financial need. To request a scholarship, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. How old should my child be to attend Safety Town?
A. The Safety Town Summer Program is designed for children entering Kindergarten or First Grade in the fall. However, due to COVID-19, Summer 2021 will open registration to students entering 2nd grade to accommodate for any students not able to attend during summer 2020.
Q. How do I know if my child is ready to attend the Safety Town Summer Program?
A. Children should be able to sit still and quietly for up to 15 minutes while the community workers do their presentations. They should also be able to pedal a small four-wheel bike. Children not able to do both should wait until they are going into First Grade to enter the program.
