Camp Summer Quest gets creative with a painting class from Pinot's Palette
While social distancing is still the norm, both kid and teen camps at Lisle Park District have stepped up to the challenge and adapted their programs so the fun can continue.
While in Phase three, both Camp Summer Quest (first to sixth grade) and No Name Teen Camp (sixth to ninth grade) were able to adjust their schedules and plans to follow state social distancing guidelines.
Though Sea Lion Aquatic park remains closed for the season, and field trips were not an option, camp directors worked out new plans to bring activities and fun to the campers at Lisle Community Park.
Bringing entertainment to the campers, playing fun social-distanced games, and plenty of crafts and games are some of the ways directors are making sure campers get the most of out their day.
Camp Summer Quest has designed a weekly schedule with a variety of activities to keep campers engaged. "Movin' Mondays" feature music-themed fun to keep the kids moving; "Talent Tuesday" allows campers to share talents and explore new ones; Water Wednesday is filled with water-based games to keep kids cool; "Kids Choice Thursday" is a camper favorite which features science experiments, in-depth crafts, food fun, and more; and "Freak Fridays" will feature different theme days. "No Name Teen Camp" is full of healthy, active outdoor activities, wet 'n wild games, and of course, hanging out with other teens.
Changes in procedure for regular camp days have been made to make sure all campers, parents, and staff stay safe from drop off to pick up. Staff and campers will be required to wear masks at drop off time, and all sign in and sign outs will be done at the car, with a staff member. Campers will be required to wash their hands at arrival of camp before heading to their home base with their groups.
Counselors are doing their best to make sure social distance is maintained throughout the days each week, as keeping campers safe remains a top priority for both "Camp Summer Quest" and "No Name Teen Camp."
Both youth and teen camps currently have openings and are taking campers weekly now through Aug. 14, with plenty of excitement planned to keep everyone entertained. Make the most of the summer and register your camper today! Learn more and register at lisleparkdistrict.org/summercamps.
