Our Summer Program
The Safety Town Summer Program is a week long, 90-minute per day program for children entering kindergarten or 1st grade. Throughout the week, stories, games, songs, and videos reinforce the skills being taught. By using a “hands-on” approach, children absorb important information and have fun at the same time. The Naperville Police and Fire Departments, Naperville Electric, Animal Control, Paddle Bear Swim School, and other community groups help teach safety awareness and prevention.
The nationwide Safety Town program was brought to Naperville in 1978, and in June of 1996 the Naperville Safety Campus opened at 1320 Aurora Ave in Naperville. Our program started out small, but has become mighty and we serve over 1,500 students in our summer program each year. The program introduces pedestrian, bike, fire, railroad, bus, animal, water, and personal safety. During the week, the children have the opportunity to make real-time 911 calls, participate in a fire evacuation drill and practice pedestrian safety plus traffic hand signals as they ride special Safety Town vehicles on the streets of Safety Town.
