Safety Town is is a two-week educational summer program for children sponsored by the Barrington Junior Women’s Club.

The Safety Town permanent site (shown above), located at the Orchard Church of Barrington (address: 1301 S Grove Ave), was built in 1997 through community support and is an integral part of the program. This miniature layout of a town was built to give children hands-on experience in using safety skills. Safety topics covered include pedestrian, motorist, fire, bicycle, water, poison, electrical, animal and playground safety as well as stranger danger. Movies, songs, poems, art and field trips to the Barrington Police & Fire Department are also included in the program to help children enjoy and understand safety rules and lessons.
