Where:  Elburn, IL 60119 (please contact coordinator for specific address)

Why: To provide young children with the opportunity to think like a scientist and to explore their environment.

Please email Dr. Figgins at: to reserve your student’s spot in the class. Call 630-319-7913 if you have questions.

Please plan to pay $5.00 per session at the first session ($25). The fee covers materials and the cost of hiring a K-2 specialist (Dr. Carolyn Riley) to help with these experiences.

Because the children are so young, we would like for you to stay with your student. This will provide needed support, but more importantly, allow you to follow up at home during the week – which will make the sessions even more valuable.

Materials that will be provided for your student:
Science Notebooks
Hand lens
Seeds, etc. to grow plants at home, too
Other materials as needed

Bass Pro Shop family camp

Came across this info at The Happy Housewife‘s blog:

Bass Pro Family Summer Camp

From June 5- July 11, every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday there are free activities at Bass Pro Shops from noon to 6 pm. Activities include: pet safety, fishing basics, archery, shooting basics, animal identification, making s’mores, plants & insects, hiking and much more.

Looks like a lot of fun activities for the family. Check out the Bass Pro website for more information, and be sure to call ahead to confirm what you will find in the store that you plan to visit.  It does say the Chicago location does not have a shooting gallery, but it seems the other activities should be there.
You could enjoy:
  • making s’mores
  • casting pond
  • crafts
  • workshops
  • a free download of you on a Field and Stream cover
Looks like a great time for families and kids of all ages.
