“Wacky Wagon provides outdoor fun that promotes an active lifestyle for children,” said Pam Gauper, party coordinator. “This is an excellent way to introduce them to new games, activities and new friends.”
Wacky Wagon also offers weekly Thursday Expeditions from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Fees vary depending on the activity. Field trips include a visit to the Libertyville Sports Complex and a day of bouncing at Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Experience in Buffalo Grove, followed by swimming at Bock Pool. Registration is required for Thursday Expeditions. Children must attend any two days of camp throughout the summer prior to participating in field trips. Transportation is included.
Fantastic Fridays take place each week at a different District site. This summer’s themes include Minions go to Camp; Wacky Wagon: The Force Awakens; Wacky Wagon Olympics; Massive Messy Fun; Oh no…It’s H2O and Around the World in 180 Minutes. Registration is required.
A complete calendar of activities is available at each site on the first day of camp and at www.parkfun.com.
