Safety Town Summer Program


2020 Summer Program Information

We are sad to announce that Safety Town Summer Program 2020 has been canceled.  This was a very difficult decision made by Naperville Safety Town Commission. Given the new CDC guidelines for COVID-19, we felt this was the correct course of action. Naperville Safety Town is concerned first and foremost about the safety and health of our children, instructors, volunteers, and community.

For parents of Safety Town age children, we encourage you to check the Safety Town Facebook page periodically for helpful tips for your children. We are evaluating the 2021 summer program to allow K-2 grade children to attend next summer to provide the Safety Town experience to any children who may have missed out this summer.

We look forward to Safety Town Summer Program 2021!

Our Summer Program
The Safety Town Summer Program is a week long 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 begins with personal safety day and evolves throughout the week to include home safety, vehicle safety, fire safety, and safety in your environment. During the week, the children have the opportunity to make practice 911 calls, participate in fire evacuation drills, design home fire escape plans, and practice pedestrian safety as they ride Safety Town vehicles on the streets of Safety Town.
