Safety Town of Santa Barbara County is planning to offer eight weekly camp sessions in summer 2022. We are coordinating closely with the school districts to assess the viability of the program during the current public health crisis and will update this notice as the situation changes. Currently, we are in a "wait and see'" mode and expect to determine the summer schedule by March 15, 2022.

Due to COVID-19 public health concerns and safety for our program, we canceled our summer camps in both 2020 and 2021. This summer, we hope that Safety Town can offer our popular program once again. In addition to our sessions for pre- and post-kindergarten age students, we are planning a specific program to accommodate those students who registered for the canceled summer 2020 sessions.

Safety Town is a fun summer program specifically designed to teach basic safety skills to children entering kindergarten in                             the fall, or those just completing kindergarten. This unique program has served children in                               Santa Barbara County for over 45 years.

About Safety Town

     Through multimedia, songs, and guest visits, the Safety Town program teaches children to evaluate “safe” from “unsafe.”  Under the guidance of volunteer youth instructors and credentialed teachers, children practice and experience their lessons in Safety Town, a miniature city layout built to the scale of a small child. Safety Town is a 17.5 hour course (3.5 hours per day, M-F, for 1 week). Topics discussed during the week include pedestrian, earthquake, fire, 9-1-1, bicycle, beach and pool, poisions, strangers, general play, along with personal and home safety. Children are visited by community safety professionals such as police, firefighters, forest rangers, paramedics, water safety professionals, and more. Program includes one off-site field trip, (ride on city bus reserved for Safety Towners only)
