-Safety Town is located at the Lewis Recreation Center at the entrance to Country Park. For GPS purposes, it is 3110 Forest Lawn Drive, Greensboro, North Carolina.
-Safety Town is a 2 week program (2 hours per day) offered each summer that teaches young children about many safety issues.
-Safety Town is open to students that are 5 or 6 years of age. If your child is 5 or 6 years old at any time during the session they want to attend, they can attend. You do not have to reside in Guilford County to be eligible.
-Our student volunteers are an invaluable resource for Safety Town. Without the assistance of these young people we would not be able to operate Safety Town. The general requirements for a volunteer is 12 years old or older and of good character. We are looking for young people that are truly interested in making a difference in our community. You may apply for as many sessions as you would like to work, but we ask that if you apply for a session that you can commit to the entire two weeks. Applications are will be available online starting on April 1 of each year. Paper applications are the only way to apply and instructions are available online.
-No. Your child can attend only 1 session per summer. Safety Town is an extremely popular program and each year all sessions fill to capacity, so in order provide each child with an opportunity we must limit attendance to 1 session per summer. If your child is 5 years old - they can attend next summer if they are 6 years old during the time of the session.
-Absolutely! In fact we encourage you to enroll your child at both 5 and 6 years old. We have found that it is beneficial to the child to come both years, just not two times during the same summer.
-Safety Town is located a Lewis Recreation Center. Lewis Recreation Center is located at 3110 Forest Lawn Drive in Greensboro, NC. Lewis Recreation is adjacent to Country Park.
Ambassador Registration starts February 1 of each year. We open the general registration on April 1 of each year. Applications are electronic in nature and can made through our online portal. If you are an Ambassador (register early), you can change sessions if you need to prior to your session starting. Being an Ambassador is an excellent way to donate to Safety Town. All sales and registrations are final. No exchanges or changes unless you are an ambassador.
Spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis. Last year, morning sessions were filled to capacity within 2 weeks of the application release date. This year we are offering parents an opportunity to get access to applications before they are publically available by becoming a Safety Town Ambassador member. Ambassdor registration opens sixty days earlier than the general registration. Ambassador registration begins February 1 and General Registration begins April 1.
Parents are required to stay only the first day of the session. We will be providing parents with important information about Safety Town during that day and its important that they remain.
