Summer camp is for children of ages five through twelve. Among the activities planned are basketball tournaments, field hockey, softball, potato sack races, soccer, track and field, baseball, water balloon contests, arts and crafts, and more. Also, prizes are awarded in several categories.
Summer Camp includes weekly adventures including miniature golf at Hollywood Park, waterslides at Pelican Harbor Aquatic Park, Haunted Trails Amusement Park, Carnival Days, and the Children’s Museum. Our most popular events are daily swimming, horseback riding, and gardening. Also planned are ice cream socials and our famous barbecues with hot dogs, corn on the cob, and juicy watermelon.
Summer Camp should be a time when children can experience true summer fun with happy memories of friends, places, and laughter.
The Summer Camp program is available at all locations: Chicago, Joliet, Lockport, Manhattan, Manteno, New Lenox and Orland Park.
