Safety Town - Barrington Junior Womens Club

Home Newsroom 20. Sign up for Safety Town

It has become a summer right of passage for 5 and 6-year-olds in Barrington. “Safety Town” is where kids go to learn the most important lessons to protect them from danger. It’s a permanent mini-town set up right here in Barrington and this summer’s sessions are filling fast.

Safety Town - Barrington Junior Womens Club The safety camp is for kids entering kindergarten or first grade. It takes place this June and July at Safety Town’s permanent site at The Orchard Church in Barrington (formerly Health World) at 1301 S. Grove. At camp the kids learn a variety of important lessons about things like traffic and bicycle safety, playground safety, animal and stranger danger, poison and electrical dangers and how to use 911, just to name a few.

All of the lessons are taught by camp directors and local middle and high-school volunteers with the help of local police and fire officials. They get the kids involved in demonstrations to help drive home the information kids need to avoid and react to emergency situations. One of the coolest parts of the two-week camp is a field trip to the Barrington police and fire departments where kids can get comfortable with police and fire officials and see our public safety peeps in action.

Barrington Safety Town Camper with Police Officer and Fireman

Safety Town is organized and sponsored by the Barrington Junior Women’s Club. There are four Safety Town sessions which take place this June and July. I’m told the two morning Safety Town sessions will be full within the next couple of days. Right now, there’s more availability for the afternoon sessions, but space is limited and filling fast.

Camper Sessions 1 and 2 run from June 14 through June 25th between 9 and 11:30 AM or 12:30 to 3PM. Sessions 3 and 4 take place at the same times of day between July 12th and July 23rd. You’ll find more information about Safety Town and can download the 2010 Camper Registration form at the Barington Junior Womens Club website, BJWC.org. You can also register on-line by clicking HERE.  The cost is $100 per camper, but the lessons learned are priceless.
