ROCHELLE ––Spring Lake Marina has been bursting with energy and excitement this summer as kids have learned, grown and explored during summer day camp.

For at least eight years Flagg Rochelle Community Park District has hosted a summer day camp for children to socialize during the day.

“We hold the summer day camp to provide an opportunity for families to bring their children to a fun, safe and creative summer experience,” park district superintendent of recreation Elizabeth Sosa explains.

Summer day camp includes swimming, theme days, arts and crafts, field trips, games and activities.

“We’ll mix fun with education, and offer a wide variety with individual attention and group interaction,” reads the camp description. “A daily lunch, snack and camp t-shirt is included.”

The camp is staffed and run by local young adults who match the energy of the students and bring creative new ideas each summer to the students.

“We also enjoy the opportunity to be able to employ a great group of local residents for our summer camp staff, they bring a wide range of skills and talents,” added Sosa.

Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District employs five camp counselors and a director.

Summer camp director Elise Maliszewski explained her favorite part of working at the camp is being with the kids and the amount of energy they bring each day.
