Safety Town is a two-week educational summer program for children sponsored by the Barrington Junior Women’s Club. Safety Town participants learn important safety lessons through hands-on activities and demonstrations. The Safety Town permanent site, located at The Orchard Evangelical Free Church, was built in 1997 through community support and is an integral part of the program. This miniature town gives the children hands-on experience in using safety skills while riding bikes and acting as pedestrians. Speakers, movies, songs, poems and art projects that support safety lessons are completed in a classroom setting. A field trip to the Barrington Public Safety Building and a local park is also included in this program. The Safety Town program is designed to help children enjoy and understand safety rules and lessons. Scholarships are available for those in need.
