**2020 Safety Town Update**
We will be hosting this year's Safety Town program at the Dixie Convention Center. All parents will receive an email prior to the start of Safety Town outlining some of the modifications we are making due to the current COVID-19 situation.
City of St. George Safety Town was created to teach important, life-long lessons about safety. This safety program is held each summer for children entering kindergarten or first grade in the upcoming fall school year.
Throughout the years, the program’s curriculum has changed to reflect new safety concerns in our society. The program now includes pedestrian safety, internet safety, bike/scooter safety, stranger danger, drug awareness, fire safety, bullying and more. Each topic covered during the program is designed to provide an exciting and effective hands-on learning environment.
Throughout the week session, stories, games, songs, and videos reinforce the safety skills being taught. By using a "hands-on" approach, children absorb important information and have fun at the same time. The City of St. George Leisure Services, teen volunteers and other community groups help teach safety awareness and prevention to our campers.

The St. George Safety Town program teaches safety lessons to children entering kindergarten and 1st grade this fall. The program is the perfect way to have fun with other teens and serve your community too! You can earn community service hours with us! Teens have a very special role is this program.
