Early Childhood Camps
Safety Town is one of Rec & Ed's most popular summer educational programs! For incoming Young 5's, Kindergarten or First Graders your child will learn safety awareness in a fun and entertaining way using a child-sized mock Ann Arbor "town." Kids learn to evaluate safe from unsafe when confronted with potentially dangerous situations.
Summer Camp for Safety Town kids is held at Dicken Elementary School and is designed for working families to complement the Safety Town program. This combination of a day camp and morning Safety Town program provides full day care from 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM Monday-Friday.
Safety Town is even more fun with Fall 2019 classmates! We try to place children with others attending their school. This gives your child a chance to meet students from their class before school begins in the fall. We will make every effort to place your child with friends as long as a special request is included when you register.
All participants receive a t-shirt and bike helmet!
The Rec & Ed Youth Scholarship Program offers activity/camp fee waivers to permanent residents of the Ann Arbor Public School district in need of financial assistance. Apply for a scholarship here at least 3 weeks before the camp your child would like to attend.
