Investigate Your World Summer Camp at Elgin Child & Family Resource Center
One Hope United’s Elgin Child & Family Resource Center summer camp has begun! Thanks to the Elgin Township who granted us $5,000 to help our children have experiences they might not get the chance to have, children at our Elgin day care center have a begun to have those experiences. We had Tim Adamz the magician come to the center. He captivated both the teachers and the students with his humor and magic.
The school age group went to the Shedd Aquarium. The children’s day started with boarding the Metra train to Union Station. They were met by the bus that transported them to the Shedd, where they experienced many different mini-educational tours. One of the favorites was the jellyfish station. They ate lunch on the grounds and toured more of the Aquarium. They arrived back to the center with smiles on their faces and a sense of satisfaction as they shared their experiences.
We will have storytellers and the bubble man visiting the center as well. The school age children will be going to Kohl Children’s Museum as well as Make-A-Messterpiece. They will be experiencing the arts and all the different aspects art brings.
We can’t say thank you enough to the Elgin Township for their contribution to the Elgin Child & Family Resource Center!
