2020 Summer Day Camp and Flames Football Updates

Ms. Shelia sure does miss all her campers and cannot wait to see you all again! 
We are crossing our fingers that we receive guidance on how to proceed with camp by June 8. 
We will follow all guidelines established to ensure the safety of our campers and staff and make
any necessary adjustments to drop off/pick up, field trips, limiting the number of participants and all other camp activities. 
There is a chance that Day Camp will begin later than June 8 or possibly be cancelled for the entire summer. 
We are asking parents to prepare a backup plan for childcare if that is the case. 
For more information please contact Shelia Tate at 847-689-7480 ext 213.
