Safety Town Commanders Camp 2021 Part of the Safety Town Camp Series
Camp will run August 10-12 from 12:30-4:00pm. This camp is for children between the ages of 8-10 and must be of age at time of camp. Have a 5-7 year old? Register for Safety Town Majors here!
We are proud to have the following experts teaching our camp:
Stephanie Bersh is the resident Yoga Teacher at Simply Bee. She has been practicing yoga for the past 15 years and teaching the past four years and is a registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance.
Stephanie will talk about mindfulness and how to handle bullying or witnessing bullying. She’ll do a fun yoga session with the kids so they can learn about the mind/body connection and how important it is to our health.
LFOLA will teach our kids all about outdoor safety, tick safety, poisonous plants that are indigenous to our praries, and why it is so important to get off our screens and get outdoors!
Foss Swim School:
Foss will teach the campers all about safety around large bodies of water, at the beach, lakes as well as at the pool! Always wear a life jacket!

*SAFETY TOWN CANCELLATION POLICY: You may cancel your child’s Safety Town registration up to four weeks before the first day of camp. We are not able to give refunds for cancellations with less than four weeks notice. A 10 percent handling fee will be assessed for all cancellations. To cancel, please call 847-234-6060. If your child is unable to attend camp due to medical reasons, you may receive a refund (less the 10% processing fee) at any time prior to the start of camp by providing a doctor’s note. We are unable to refund for any missed days of camp.
*NO REPEAT CAMPERS: To ensure that many children in our community have the opportunity to go through camp between the ages of 5 and 7, once your child has graduated from Safety Town, they cannot attend camp again. Thank you for understanding.
*WAIT LIST POLICY: If Safety Town sells out, you can place your child on a waiting list from our website. If a spot should open up, we will contact families in the order they were placed on the waiting list.
