Summer Camp

Due to Hawthorn School District 73 extending the school year because of snow days, the first day of Session 1 Day Camp will be Tuesday, June 10, 2014 (with the exception of Camp Starfish, Camp Firefly and Lil Rascals Camp which will begin on June 9, 2014). Camp fees will be adjusted to reflect a 1 day credit.
