Camps to be held at new recreation center
Young children will have the opportunity this summer to learn important safety tips through the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department’s Safety Town camps. Week-long Safety Town camps will be offered in June and July to instruct children ages 4 to 6 about different aspects of safety.
Safety Town will move to a new location this year, at the county’s new Old Atlanta Park Recreation Center which opened in February.
“Our Safety Town camps are always very popular, and we are excited to be able to hold them this year in one of our new recreation centers,” Director of Parks and Recreation Jerry Kinsey said. “The Old Atlanta Park Recreation Center will be a great space for this program.”
Safety Town is a fun-filled, five-day program designed to teach children about safety awareness and preventive safety measures. Topics covered will include fire safety, playground safety, poison safety, stranger danger, bus safety and more. Children will also learn traffic safety while driving kid carts through a child-size “Safety Town Village.”
Camps run Monday through Friday during several weeks in June and July, and participants can choose from a 9 a.m. to noon session or a 1 to 4 p.m. session. Parents are invited to attend a graduation ceremony held on the last day of each session.
Each session costs $80.
Old Atlanta Park Recreation Center is located at 810 Nichols Road in Suwanee. For more information about Safety Town, call 770.781.2215.
