Swimming WELCOME BACK!!
Campers will attend Glenview Park District pools for public swim time on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Tuition and registration fee covers swimming fees for our camp. To ensure your child’s safety, counselors receive basic water safety training. Campers are tested by Glenview Park District Lifeguards and the Wesley Director &/or Site Directors to evaluate their swimming ability. Each camper will be given designated pool areas to play in and around. Campers who are non-swimmers or those who do not pass the swim test will be required to wear life vests (provided by Wesley and/or Glenview Park District) and play in water no more than waist deep and within arm’s length of their counselor. Our counselors and lifeguards are strategically placed in and around the pools and the campers.
Swim lessons are available and optional. Wesley Campers are provided an opportunity to register for the Glenview Park District group swim lessons. Wesley will bus campers to and from swim lessons. Swim lessons will be held on
Fieldtrips WELCOME BACK!!!
Campers will attend weekly fun-filled fieldtrips. We are excited to bring back fieldtrips as we can safely do so. The ever changing environment and status will dictate what field trips we will go on, nevertheless, we WILL be going on fieldtrips!
Wednesdays are Theme Days! Campers participate in activities geared towards a theme. Campers can look forward to such themes as Sports Day, USA Day, Olympic Day and other original themes.
Campers participate in afternoon adventures from 3:45-5:15 PM. Campers will be engaged in a variety of age appropriate sports, art, and challenging theme activities. Activities may include art, sport, cooking, multi-cultural, language arts, drama, team building, science, and much, more!
At times when the weather doesn’t allow the campers to go out, whether it is the heat, cold, or rain, our counselors have planned a variety of fun-filled alternate activities for the children inside our campsite.
