About the Programs
This program is provided by Chess Wizards. Campers will each receive a chess board and a competition trophy as they learn the sport of chess and enhance their skills through an array of game situations and activities. Learning strategies will include chess puzzles, one-to-one lessons, “wizard says” games and more. All campers will return home at the end of the week with their own learning materials to keep. In addition to achieving greater chess mastery, students in this program will gain added self-confidence, along with strategic planning and critical thinking skills.
This program comes to us through the Kids’ Table, located on North Avenue in Chicago. Our young cooks will eat what they make, while creating something different each day. Some of the delicious dishes campers will create are pizza and American apple pie. Additionally, campers will taste-test fresh fruits and vegetables from the Farmers’ Market and have their own Farmers’ Market Feast. One day out of the week will be set aside for making ice cream sundaes to celebrate birthdays and holidays throughout the year. Bon appetit!
This program is provided by Enso Chicago Studio on State Street. Campers will learn and advance at several different levels depending on what belt (color) they currently possess. White belt/beginners are totally welcome! Campers will wear their karate uniforms, but if they are new to this sport and do not have one, they will have the option of purchasing one from the karate instructor. Any form of comfortable loose-fitting sports clothing is also acceptable. This genre of martial arts emphasizes the basic forms of self-protection and self-defense. This camp will also teach self-discipline and strength, while promoting the values of self-confidence and self-respect.
Join the band and learn to play an instrument while making music with your friends! Joining the FXW Jaguar Band means your child will be part of a group working towards common musical goals. Come meet Band Director Andrew Zelm and learn what this fun activity has to offer, both this summer and on into the next school year!
Students will be challenged intellectually, musically, socially and emotionally as well as learn about music and all it has to offer!
