Safety Village is a program that focuses on teaching safety to 4 and 5 year olds. It’s a week long program that is filled with activities to make learning safety objectives fun while they are learning.
Children participating are put in small groups of two or three and then assigned to a responsible teen helper. Each day offers stations of snacks, coloring and crafts, videos, role playing, and “driving” around Safety Village.
Safety Village is sponsored by the Bates County Elks Lodge. If further information is needed call 660-679-4025.
