Summer Camp!

Today's guest blogger is Laura in Aurora. 

Ok, I know I’m probably the LAST person to start scheduling their kid, but there’s 3 great places for Wheaton/Warrenville/Geneva/Naperville/Aurora folks to look at for summer activities (I didn’t include the park districts, because everybody turns there first, right?)

1) Fermilab. AWESOME summer program, especially if your kids are into nature or physics/science. Programs for as young as 1st graders, and I can tell you that my boys (grades 2 and 4) LOVED the M-class, where they built their own cars from pasta! 

2) St. Irene School in Warrenville. Disclaimer, my kids go here, but they’ve put out a summer class schedule for the first time, and it’s AWESOME – one class is about American Girls (dolls and their stories), one for Jr High deals with books & movies (like Twilight) and a class for little kids about Eric Carle. My fave? “Do You Like to Blow Things Up” for 2nd -5th graders. 

3) Naper Settlement. I love the fact that kids discover history through mysteries…they use codes, GPS devices and participate in treasure hunts. 

4) Morton Arboretum – Nature camps like you wouldn’t believe. My kids did a nighttime program about owls and LOVED it. Truly a hidden gem. 

We're always looking for guest bloggers! If you'd like to share something with the Dupage Mamas community, send us your completed post or half-baked ideas.
