Safety Town

It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the Summer Fun Camp, Special Recreation Camp, Field Trip Fever, and Safety Town programs scheduled this summer. The staff has been hard at work adapting these programs to the ongoing pandemic limitations and had hoped Virginia’s Phase 3 would accommodate them. On Tuesday, Governor Northam announced that Phase 3 would begin Wednesday, July 1, and released the necessary guidelines. Unfortunately, the requirements for social distancing, staffing, and other restrictions make it difficult to offer these programs at a level of quality that you and your children expect and deserve. We will be issuing full refunds to all who have registered for these programs. If you would prefer to apply the fees to another Parks and Recreation program rather than receive a refund, please email the office no later than Tuesday, June 30 parksandrec@yorkcounty.gov.


About the Program

Safety Town is a government and community partnership designed to teach young children, going into kindergarten, various aspects of life safety. Through the use of age-appropriate, hands-on interactive experiences, children enjoy learning lifesaving behaviors and practices that can help reduce the chance of serious injury.

Safety Town provides a safe and interesting learning environment that is set up to simulate an actual town. The Safety Town site features mock buildings, sidewalks and streets, and is used as a practice area for the safety lessons.

CANCELLED FOR 2020
