Safety Town Deputies Camp 2022 From Monday, August 15 - Wednesday, August 17

Safety Town Deputies Camp 2022 Part of the Safety Town Camp Series

Safety Town Deputies is an interactive safety awareness program for children 2-5 years of age. The purpose of Safety Town is to have your little ones gain awareness of pet safety and fire safety and learn about the role of police in our community. The program will have visits from the Lake Forest Police Department and the Lake Forest Fire Department. K-9 Reading Buddies will also be in attendance with a plush dog for campers to practice with. Your camper will also be kept busy with safety-themed arts and crafts, songs, and stories.

Safety Town will be held at Gorton Community Center from Monday, August 15th through Wednesday the 17th from 9 am to 11:30 am, rain or shine. Enter the Drop-In Learning Center entrance upon arrival, pick up will be located under the covered driveway at 11:30 am each morning.

Please print and return the below forms no later than the morning of your child’s first day. Bring a backpack with your child’s name labeled with extra clothes and/or diapers and pull-ups.

*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 ten 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 2 and 5, 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 waitlist by calling the office at 847/234-6060. If a spot opens up, we will contact families in the order they were placed on the waiting list.
