Chicago is an incredible city - but it's so large and so vast and so diverse that all of us are missing out on tons of great people, businesses, organizations, events and more.

Are you and your kids counting down the days until summer camp? Being stuck inside on cold, winter days can make kids antsy, but yoga is the perfect way to help them get moving and have fun doing it. Try these kid-friendly yoga activities with your family the next time you're indoors.

Prevent Homesickness

A lot of kids -- particularly those who have never been away from home for very long -- feel quite homesick during overnight camp. Day camp provides a fun camp option without this issue.

Every teacher and most parents are aware of the summer slump: students lose academic ground during the summer. Summer camp is one way to fight the summer slump.

Having fun isn't the only benefit of sending your children to our Chicago, Illinois summer camp. Sure, your kids will enjoy their time swimming, playing sports, learning important science concepts (Shh! We won't tell them they are learning if you don't!), cooking, and more, but there are many additional benefits to Oasis Day Camp. 

At Oasis Summer Day Camp Winnetka Illinois campus, we're all too familiar with the winter doldrums. Harsh winter weather makes it hard to play outside for too long, and everyone wants to just sit in front of the TV with a cup of hot cocoa. Don't let this dreary weather hold your kids back. Use some of these fun ideas to help them learn while they're having fun.

School days tend to trigger a bit of anxiety for parents and children alike. Tests, grades, homework, on-going assessments...sometimes it simply becomes overwhelming, and we begin to long for days filled with care-free activities with no pressures for our precious young ones.
