On Jan. 23, the Main-Dempster Mile will sponsor the second annual Camp Local! Evanston Summer Camp Fair, featuring summer program options for parents to consider.

The event, held during pickup hours at Lincoln Elementary School, 910 Forest Ave., will showcase about a dozen local camp programs, including offerings from Little Beans Cafe, Music Theater Works, Open Studio Project, Mudlark Theater Company, Goldfish Swim School, McGaw YMCA, Lumenkids, and Music Stars Camp from The Musical Offering.

The City of Evanston’s Parks & Recreation Department will also be there to promote their programs and answer questions.

“Parents are always looking for a safe, fun place for their kids to spend their day during summer vacations,” says Katherine Gotsick, Executive Director of the Main-Dempster Mile, “and Evanston has a lot of really excellent programs, both large and small. We’re sure parents will find a great Evanston-based camp where they can place their kiddos this summer, and the kiddos will love where they camp.”
