Each summer, Jones Memorial Community Center runs its popular Summer Fun Club day camp program to youth participants residing in Chicago Heights. This program offers educational activities as well as weekly field trips to complement the learning activities taking place daily at the Center. Field trips are the highlight of our program. Field trips provide greater knowledge, incentives, exposure, and hands-on experiences for many kids that would otherwise not have these opportunities. This year, we have added a new component to the Summer Fun Club program called Camp In A Box. Our goal is to reach a broader community by doing popups camps at local parks. The Summer Fun Club program gives kids a lifetime of memories.
Jones Center understands the toll that the past year has placed on so many families in our program. Because the Summer Fun Club is so valued, we have waived the tuition fee for the children. This gesture is a relief to many of our families. We can’t do this alone. We need the community’s support. Please consider helping us by becoming a sponsor. Opportunities are outlined below.
