CLARENDON HILLS – This summer, Clarendon Hills Park District campers have explored the both the jungle and the ocean floor; and on July 10, these world travelers topped the charts during "I'm a rock star" day.
Since June 16, the park district's camp imagination has shown kindergartners through fifth graders what it's like to venture to space and be a superhero, helping children realize that their imagination has no limits, according to Recreation Marketing Supervisor Darcy Gans.
Campers also complete fun and enriching activities based on the different themes, which have helped the children hone skills and expand their imagination and creativity.
Camp imagination runs Monday through Thursday until July 24.
