Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center (GECRC) Summer Program

The GECRC summer program is off and running! This program runs three days per week for 6 weeks during the summer months. The program is open to all elementary and junior high students in D41 and CCSD89 who meet eligibility requirements. This summer the program is held at Park View Elementary School in CCSD89. Programming is aimed at ensuring all children in need have access to academic and social support during summer break to prevent the "summer slide,” and includes classroom instruction, mentorship, enrichment activities, field trip experiences and "camp" week.
