What We Teach
Throughout the two-week, eight day session children learn 10 safety topics and stories, games, songs, videos and books reinforce the safety skills being taught each day in the classroom. By using a "hands-on" approach, children absorb important information and have fun at the same time.
Each day, the children have the opportunity to practice bike and pedestrian safety as they ride special Safety Town vehicles on the streets of Safety Town's Adventureland. The children also take field trips to The New Albany Police Station and The Plain Township Fire Department. The following topics are covered:
Daily Topics: Bike & Helmet Safety, Pedestrian Safety and Playground Safety
Week One Topics: Personal Safety, Police / Emergency Safety with Field Trip to the New Albany Police Department, School Bus Safety, Gas Safety with Digger Dog, Animal Safety, and Water Safety
Week Two Topics: Fire Prevention, Home Safety with a field trip to the Plain Township Fire Station, School Bus Safety, Poison Control
Week two concludes with a Graduation Ceremony attended by the Mayor of New Albany and/or a City Council Member, the New Albany Chief of Police, and the Plain Township Fire Chief along with the police officers, firefighters and teaching staff who spend the 8 days with your child. Families are invited to attend on the last day of camp where highlights of the camp are presented, songs are performed by the campers and each camper receives a graduation certificate.
