Q. Do I need to live in Naperville to register for the Summer Program?
A. We welcome all children from any city or state to our program. There is no price difference based on residence.
Q. Can I register more than one child?
A. You can register up to 4 of your own children at a time. Each parent should only register their own children.
Q. Can I register a friend’s child?
A. You may not register a friend’s child. By signing up another child (who is not your own), you are forging the consent of the other parent, since the waiver includes unforeseeable issues that may arise with the children’s safety. It puts you at risk for the other child’s liability, and it places Safety Town at an increased risk also.
