It only takes seconds for a child without training to be lured into a dangerous situation. As much as you would like to, you can’t be with your child every minute of the day to protect them.

How can you teach your children the skills they need to protect themselves without scaring them?

Christopher’s Clubhouse offers safety education and prevention programs for children, teens and women that are taught by trained instructors.  Our Family Safety Camp for parents and children ages 5-12 actually trains children, in a multi-sensory, fun and interactive environment, to respond to dangerous scenarios. Children are taught to instinctively  respond to potential danger without panic.  The curriculum includes types of emergencies, how to respond, fire safety, dog safety, bullying prevention, good/bad touch, resistance against abduction and more.  Parents participate with their child and have the knowledge and skills to reinforce it at home.  Snacks and lunch are included in this one day Family Safety Camp.

Through participatory exhibitions and innovative programs, Christopher’s Clubhouse:

  • Provides an educational course using trained instructors through our Family Safety Camp curriculum.
  • Reaches out to children and parents of diverse backgrounds and cultures.
  • Offers a fun and stimulating environment where parents and children can learn from law enforcement, educators and concerned parents that have been trained and certified.

Christopher’s Clubhouse Programs include:

  • Family Safety Camp for parents and children ages 5-12
  • Always Be Safe Assemblies – Designed specifically for schools
  • Fingerprinting and ID’s for Children
  • Teen Girls In Focus (TGIF) A program designed for teen girls to give them the skills to focus on their safety.
  • RAD for Women – A program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for teen girls and women. This is a comprehensive, 12 hour, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.

Christopher’s Clubhouse offers all of our Safety Education classes through after school programs, Boys & Girls Clubs, Scout Troops and more.
