A miniature village

About Community Safety Village camps

Summer camps at the Community Safety Village provide a fun environment where students learn how healthy lifestyle choices have a positive impact on them today and in the future.

Camps include interactive workshops, games and sports activities facilitated by police officers, representatives from police, fire and paramedic services, trained safety educators and enthusiastic camp leaders.

Camps run from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m each day. 

Meals are not provided—campers must bring their own lunch. The Community Safety Village is a nut-free facility.

Transportation to the village is not provided. Before-and-after camp supervision is available beginning at 8 a.m. and closing at 4 p.m., to a limited number of campers. Please contact the village for more information.
