Excited children splashed down a wet slide and threw water balloons at each other Tuesday during Wet Day at the Spotlight Youth Theater summer camp at The Chapel in Libertyville.
Thirty-four children were taking a break during the weeklong camp for ages 4 to 12 that focuses on voice, drama and dance run by the Cary-based organization that hosts summer camps through out the Chicago area.
Students took part in activities in preparation for the presentation of "Surfin' the High Seas" on Friday at 2:30 p.m.
"At the end of the week, they are going to put on a 30-minute little show, and they are going to learn eight different songs and dances," camp coordinator Susie Kolterman said. "They will have a chance to get up onstage and get that confidence building that goes on with drama."
But for at least for one hot afternoon, the campers took a break and enjoyed running through sprinklers and splashing each other as they competed in wet and wild games and ran around an obstacle course.
