    Citizens Park
    511 Lake Zurich Road, Barrington, IL 60010

    Be sure to stop by the BStrong Together booth at KidFest 2019!

    KidFest is a FREE, fun, family event that gets the entire family outside and moving.

    Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, Leave No Child Inside and the Barrington Park District come together to host this fabulous community event, along with over 20 other different organizations. This is a FREE event located at Citizen’s Park. When you and your family arrive at the park, check in at one of the registration tents to get your All Access Wristband to participate in all of the activities. Then, pick up a free kite (for ages 2-10), provided by the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, and fly it in the big open field. At your leisure, experience each of the activity stations. Climb a tree, build a birdhouse, race your parents, do an obstacle course or explore the creatures that live in the pond. Food and drinks available for purchase from Rotary Grill! We have something for everyone to enjoy and its ALL FREE! This event is very popular and parking is limited. FREE kites will be provided to all children ages 2-10. One kite per child.

    The KidFest mission is to provide activities that inspire healthy habits, expose nature opportunities in the area and to encourage families to get up and explore the great outdoors. Our goal is to inspire families to go for a hike, a bicycle ride, play catch, fish, play frisbee and of course, Fly A Kite!

    Youth Mental Health First Aid Training - Part 1

    5:00 pm-9:00 pm

    235 Lions Drive, Barrington, IL 60010


    Tuesday evenings, May 14 & 21, 5-9 PM
    Barrington Park District, Recreation Building
    Samaritan Counseling Center is offering FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid Training for adults involved in the lives of adolescents in our community!
    Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
    These classes (usually $100) are free, thanks to a grant from the Barrington Area Community Foundation to help reduce the stigma around mental health and eliminate suicide from our communities.
