The Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department will again conduct Safety Town camps this summer.

The seven-day program is designed to teach children ages 4 ½ to 6 ½ about safety awareness and preventive measures.

Topics include bus, fire and playground safety, poison awareness and stranger danger.

Volunteers ages 12 and up are encouraged to participate and will be supervised by the Safety Town director and teachers.

“Volunteers are crucial to the success of Safety Town,” said Laura Pate, program supervisor. “They assist with the program’s operation and help the children have a fun time.

"While volunteering, they have the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and gain valuable experience.”

Two six-week sessions will be held at Daves Creek Elementary in June and July. Each session costs $85.
