Week Six - Friday

It's hard to believe that week six at Fred's Camp has come to an end.  The summer has gone by so fast!  It was a busy day at Fred's Camp with a lot of a ctivity and giongs on.  The Tweens got into touch with their wild side and spent the morning at Lincoln Park Zoo while back at camp the older kids had an adventure of their own with the Amazing Race: Fred's Camp Edition.  They were travleing all over the camp to find their clues and win the race.  After the cookout, Junior Camp defied the rain by playing wacky water games of their own.  It was a great day!  Make sure you check your email for a complete schedule of next week's events and the facebook bpage for everything that happened today!  We hope you have a great weekend!


P.S. - Fred's Camp would not be what it is today without the tireless effort of all of the counselors.  We would like to give them a shoutout and encourage you to tell them your appreciation for all of the work that they do.  Thank you to the best camp staff in Chicago! 


Week Six - Thursday

The weather was perfect today at Fred's Camp.  It was impossible to walk around DePaul's campus without running into a group of laughing 2nd graders or singing kindergartners, it was a great day to be at outside at Fred's Camp!  In the morning, Senior Camp had a counselor physical challenge tournament.  They were asked to perform all types of challenging feats while being cheered boistrously by their campers.  The kindergartners, having recovered from Wacky Wednesday, went swimming, played in the park and spent the day in their groups.  1st graders had the opportunity to go bowling this afternoon and early reports have them tearing up the alley and posting some pretty impressive scores!  Make sure you check out our Facebook page to see pictures of all that happened today. 



Week Six - Wednesday

It was a great day at Fred's Camp!  The sun was shining, it was a comfortable 70 degrees all day and each age group had something extra special over the course of the day!  Kindergartners spent a wacky morning in the Quad, rotating through several stations including sports, music, art and games!  Senior camp had a special treat this morning, they participated in a basketball skills clinic that was taught by the DePaul men's and women's basketball team.  The continued partnership between DePaul athletics and Fred's Camp has created opportunities for growth for the athletes, counselors and most importantly the campers!  There was even a rumor (confirmed) that New Orleans Pelicans star power-forward Anthony Davis made a guest appearance!  Only at Fred's Camp!  Who knows who will show up next!  Make sure you check out the Facebook page for pictures of all of todays events.

Week Six got off to a great start this week.  Junior Camp was entertained this afternoon by the crzay antics of the Flying Fool, it was amazing!  Senior camp today played a flag tournament on Wish Field.  they were playing so well that they looked ready to suit up with the Bears at training camp!  Tomorrow is picture day for groups KC, KG, KH, 1GA, 1GB, 1GC, 1BB and1BC so make sure that you wear your Fred's Camp shirt to camp!

It was fantasatic Friday at Fred's Camp to finish week five.  Senior Camp spent the morning having an epic ultimate ball tournament, think ultimate frisbee with a ball instead of a frisbee.  Senior camp also had a frisbee toss championship for the Fred's Cup.  Make sure you ask your camper about to see if their group claimed the cub!  This afternoon, Junior Camp was attacked by a pirate!  He took the gold and scattered it all over camp so the campers had to search far and wide to recover it.  It was an adventure on the high seas!  We have a lot in store next week so make sure that you take a look at the Week 6 schedule or check your email for updates.  We have pictures of todays events on Facebook so click the link to the right to check them out!
