Kids can take a journey back in time and make discoveries to see what the past was like at the newest camp that was added to the Bensenville Park District's summer camp roster. The District is offering its 2nd annual, two-week Discover Camp at Fischer Farm for kids between 6 and 10. Discovery Camp is scheduled for July 10-21, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. The Camp Program will help kids to be appreciative of their natural surroundings and will also have hands-on experiences of what it was like to grow up on a farm. Fischer Farm, one of the oldest remaining homesteads in DuPage County, is where kids will be able play games, enjoy themed activities, and go on hikes to view native plants and learn about animals this summer. The campers will also go on field trips to Volkening Heritage Farm in Schaumburg and to the Churchville Schoolhouse in Bensenville. Knowing the summer heat will undoubtedly tag along, all of the Bensenville Park District camp kids enjoy swimming at the Bensenville Water Park and Splash Pad.
