ELBURN—Are your children already saying they’re bored this summer? Relief is in sight at the Keslinger Road Day Camp.

The camp will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, July 26-30, at Faith Assembly Church on Keslinger Road in Elburn, one-half mile west of Route 47.

Camp leader Adam Hammond has held similar programs at the Crossroads Christian Youth Center for eight years, with up to 150 children in attendance. This is the first year the day camp will take place in Elburn.

“We felt it was time to offer day camp to the Kaneland area,” he said.

The deadline for registration is Monday, July 5. Attendance is capped at 80 children.

The nondenominational, faith-based camp will feature creek-walking, cook-outs, skits, water wars, craft, games, playground, sports, Bible stories, competitions with prizes, and swimming at both the Crossroads Christian Youth Center on Route 30 in Big Rock and at Splash Country in Aurora.
