Teens and Vaping: What You Need to Know
Parent Coffee

This Parent Coffee will be held at 9:30 – 11:00 am and 7:00 – 8:30 pm on November 15th.
Parents are encouraged to bring their middle and high school students to the evening event.


What is vaping?  What does a JUUL look like?  How do I talk to my children and teens about vaping?

According to the 2018 Illinois Youth Survey, Barrington, Lake Zurich, and Wauconda students reported vaping use at levels three times higher than in the rest of Lake County. Nearly 1/3rd of BHS seniors reported vaping within the last 30 days and vaping use is on the rise among middle and high school students across the country.

The use of e-cigarettes, including JUULs, exposes the developing brain to highly addictive nicotine which is known to have long-term effects including nicotine addition, decreased focus and impulse control, increased risk for depression and other mood disorders, and primes the brain for addiction to other drugs. Vaping also exposes the lungs to harmful chemicals including known carcinogens and other toxic chemicals.

Join BStrong Together, the Lake County Health Department, Barrington 220 and others for an important community conversation about vaping.

    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!
