Young children can learn important safety tips this summer during the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department’s Safety Town camps.

The five-day camps, offered in June and July, are for children ages 4 to 6. They will be held at a new location this year, the county’s Old Atlanta Park Recreation Center, which opened in February.

“Our Safety Town camps are always very popular, and we are excited to be able to hold them this year in one of our new recreation centers,” said Jerry Kinsey, director of parks and recreation.

“The Old Atlanta Park Recreation Center will be a great space for this program.”

The camps are designed to teach children about safety awareness and preventive measures.

Topics covered include bus, fire, playground and poison safety, as well as stranger danger.

Participants can also learn traffic safety while driving carts through a child-size “safety town village.”

The camps run several weeks in June and July. There are two sessions: 9 a.m.-noon or 1 to 4 p.m. Each session costs $80.

Parents are invited to attend a graduation ceremony on the last dayv of each session.   

Old Atlanta Park Recreation Center is at 810 Nichols Road. For more information about Safety Town, call (770) 781-2215.
