Glendale Heights, IL – Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School presents “Junior Camp Go!” summer day camp for children age 8 to 12 and “Senior Camp Go!” for students age 13 to 17 with emotional needs who require additional structure during the reduced schedule of summer school. Camp Go! has been offered since 2002 and historically enrolls up to 15 children.
“Camp Go! gives these kids an opportunity to experience new, fun activities under the supervision of trained adults who can give them the individualized attention they need,” said Kristen Jakubowski, lead recreational therapist at Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School. “It brings additional structure to their day during summer break, which is less structured than the regular school year.”
At Camp Go!, nationally certified recreation therapists will host cooperative games, arts, crafts, open gyms, theme days and other activities. Students will take trips to local arcades, sporting events, water parks, museums, zoos and other fun and educational places.
At Senior Camp Go!, high school students will learn life skills by getting involved in the community. Activities include social skills groups, recreational activities, outdoor education, fishing, hiking and nature studies, field trips and outdoor sports.
Junior Camp Go! and Senior Camp Go! will be held 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays June 17 to July 31 (off July 4) at Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School’s north campus, 135 N. Brandon Drive, Glendale Heights.
If enough students register, Senior Camp Go! also will be held at the same time at Adventist GlenOaks Therapeutic Day School’s west campus, located at the North Aurora Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 940 Mooseheart Road, North Aurora.
Depending on interest and enrollment, camp could continue on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Aug. 4 to 15.
