A Positive Youth Development Program of Newtown Youth & Family Services

Newtown Youth & Family Services’ Safety Town program is a one-week interactive safety education camp developed to teach rising kindergartners and first graders important life-saving lessons on strangers, traffic, fire, pedestrian, poison, drug, playground, bus and water safety. This program began in 2013 and is a replica of the nationally recognized program founded in 1937 in Cleveland, Ohio by policeman Fred Boals.

Safety Town combines classroom instruction and the use of a miniature town designed to provide a complete hands-on experience. The miniature town has a fire house, police station, library, and even features the historic Newtown, CT flag pole. Within this town, there are working traffic lights, crosswalks, bicycle lanes and signs which create an environment for children to practice what they have learned through constructive play.
