You know the toy your kid desperately wants for Christmas? The one they’ll DIE without? The one you’re madly bidding for on eBay? Yeah, they’ll be bored with it by Dec. 26. Which, not so coincidentally, happens to be the day you can ship your little darlings off to a Mini Holiday Camp at River Park.
Registration for the camp, which runs 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Dec. 26-30, is now open online or in person at 5100 N. Francisco. Children K-8 are eligible (the website says ages 6-12, but that’s due to a computer glitch); cost is $100 and does not include lunch or snacks. The program is filling up fast; of the 25 available slots, more than half are already taken.
Online registration is also open for the Chicago Park District’s winter session, which runs Jan. 9 – March 25. Walk-in registration starts this Saturday, Dec. 3, at most parks. Fitness center and lap swim membership sign-up begins Jan. 3.
