SUMMER FUN ACADEMY: AGES 6-13

309 S DUSABLE • 673-9183
Camp hours: 7:30 am-5:00 pm
Welcome to the new and improved Proctor Summer Fun Academy Camp! This year is going to be an exciting one. Children will experience fun, adventure, and excitement in an atmosphere of safety and inclusion for everyone. We are now offering 5 two-week sessions instead of 2 four-week sessions. This gives you the opportunity to choose from ten action packed weeks of sports of all sorts, performing arts and entertainment, and culinary lessons, just to name a few.
What sets Proctor Fun Academy apart from the rest is the knowledge children will learn in the classroom. For example, in addition to ice-skating, students will make ice cream, and also learn what happens during an ice age! Children are grouped according to age and gender and are provided lunch and a snack each day. Camp hours are 7:30am-5:00pm to increase the availability to partake in our camp and meet the needs of our community. Scholarships are available for those who qualify.

YOUTH PROGRAM: AGES 14-15
Camp hours: 7:30 am-5:00 pm
Are you considered a “tween” because you are too old for summer camp but too young to work? Well, this is the camp for you! Proctor Center, in conjunction with the Summer Fun Academy will help ages 14-15 prepare for high school, college, and the real world. We will visit local colleges, have volunteer opportunities, and help prepare for real-life experiences. You can still attend the Friday field trips.
