“There are not enough words to express how thankful we are for the summer camp programs that the Mundelein community park offers for the kids. My daughter has been a camper since Kindergarten and absolutely loves it and always looking forward to it! She has  attended both Trails and Odyssey teen programs and has loved them both.  It feels so good to have a trustworthy place to  drop off your child in the summer months that is safe, full of fun activities and have peace of mind as a parent. We are so grateful!”
-Kathy Sarris-Taktikos
