The DeKalb Park District is offering in-person summer camps for children entering kindergarten through 6th Grade. Superintendent of Recreation and Facilities Greg Bruggeman says kids can expect to participate in a variety of safe, healthy activities including human foosball, arts & crafts, and virtual tours of the Louvre Museum and the San Diego Zoo.

"We're looking at adapting a lot of our programs that we have done in the past," he said, "to comply with social distancing, as well as with 10 participants."

Families across Illinois have had to adapt to e-learning due to the stay-at-home order. But with the school year winding down, they’ll soon have to adapt to another new normal -- the lack of summer activities. A Rockford organization has made the decision to postpone its summer camp programs until 2021.

The Rockford Area Arts Council has summer art programs for children of all ages. There’s ArtsPlace, ArtsPlace II and RAAC camp.
