EUGENE, Ore -- Eugene Police Department is recruiting new kindergarten students and teens for this summer's Eugene Safety Town.

Eugene Safety Town is a two-week educational program that introduces pre-kindergarten children to safety awareness. Children will learn over 30 different safety subjects with a focus on bike and pedestrian safety. Other subjects include personal safety, bus safety, fire safety, playground safety, poison prevention, and water safety. Children will also learn through instruction, song, games, and play.

Please note, only children who will enter kindergarten for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year are eligible to attend.

Eugene Safety Town includes two camps, morning and afternoon on July 16 through the 27 at Prairie Mountain Middle School located at 5305 Royal Avenue in Eugene.  The cost is $40 for city residents and $50 for non-residents. Some partial scholarships will be available for Eugene City residents.

Camper applications will be available online on Monday, March 5, and at Eugene Police Headquarters. Click here for additional information.

Eugene Police is currently recruiting for teen volunteers, ages 13-19, to be camp counselors. Teen applicants undergo a background check and an interview process. Teen applications will be accepted beginning March 5.
