District 65 notified us today that camp can only meet at half capacity. That limitation affects the budget so severely that we can't begin to pay salaries and buy materials like books, games,toys, t-shirts, fire helmets and new bikes.

So it is with real regret that we are cancelling camp this year. We are hopeful that by January of 2022, we will know that the virus is under control and that we can operate safely and at full capacity.   

Emails were sent to camper and volunteer emails earlier today. Let's get vaccinated as soon as we are eligible, enjoy the summer in other ways and finish 2021 with a healthy 2022 in front of us.

We are cautiously optimistic that camp will be able to meet this summer. But we probably won't be sure until late April or May.

We're going to take registrations for campers and the teen volunteers but we won't be asking for the fee until we are able to confirm that the District will be holding summer school since we follow that schedule.

Dates are TENTATIVE until Dist. 65 waits to be sure no snow days need to be used and then confirms the summer school start date.


It looks like summer school will begin on June 14. We can only hope. 

Choose from 5 sessions:  3 morning, 2 afternoon.    2 hours each. $130/child. Scholarships available for free/reduced lunch students.

Teen volunteers are an essential part of the program and can earn community credit hours. This year we're going to ask the teens to pay $5 to cover the cost of the t-shirts. Payment will be due from teens on the first day of camp.
