Summer Camps

Summer Camps

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Provided at Summer Camps
There will never be a day where a summer camper goes hungry at the Bloomingdale Park District. Thanks to the Illinois State Board of Education Seamless Summer Option, the BPD will offer free breakfast and lunch to all summer day campers.

 

"We are thankful to have the opportunity to collaborate with the Illinois State Board of Education Seamless Summer Program to provide our campers with healthy, convenient breakfast and lunch options," said Park District Executive Director Carrie Fullerton. "This type of partnership truly supports and benefits participants in our day camp programs.”

BPD's summer day camp program is designed to spark your child’s imagination, grow new friendships, and assist them in discovering new talents each and every day. With creatively-planned activities, campers enjoy summer to the fullest extent and look forward to returning year after year.

 

Registration is available online and at the Johnston Recreation Center.

 


Moana

Outdoor Movie

Outdoor Movie

Bring your blankets, lawn chairs and snacks for a night under the stars enjoying our featured flick Moana Friday, June 2 at Bloomingdale Bank & Trust.

 

An adventurous teenager sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, she meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, who helps guide her. Together they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she always sought: her own identity.

 

Enjoy the Moonwalk from 7 to 7:45 p.m. and fun movie trivia with free giveaways from 7:45 to 8 p.m.! In the event of inclement weather, the movie will be moved into the JRC gymnasium.
