nature camps SAND TRACKERS Embark on a summer adventure along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. Along with swimming and playing in the sand, Sand Trackers will learn about and develop an appreciation for this valuable fresh water resource. Grades 1-2 Activities A love for the beach and water is a must for this camp as days are spent exploring and combing the shore for treasure. A new theme will be highlighted each week, such as: • Wonders of Water, • Treasures of the Beach and • Animals of the Lake, to name a few. Campers play games, go on treasure hunts, conduct experiments and get creative with crafts, all reflecting the theme of the week. A special celebration day such as “Hawaiian Day” or “Pirate Day” takes place each week. Field trips each session add to the summer fun. Your child will enjoy instructional introto-swim lessons at the indoor pool at Recreation Center of Highland Park. We highly recommend you supplement the introductory lessons with a swim class offered through Recreation Center of Highland Park. Call 847.579.4051 for details. Important Information Campers are supervised by a certified lifeguard while swimming at the beach. Staff members are certified in Red Cross First Aid and CPR to ensure camper safety at all times. The camper to staff ratio is 8:1. Campers must bring a sack lunch and beverage to camp every day. They will receive a Sand Trackers beach towel and water bottle on the first day of camp.
