The America SCORES Chicago program fun doesn’t stop just because the last school bell has rung. By the end of the summer, SCORES will have hosted three different summer camps – those at Douglas Park, Henson Elementary School, and Hay Elementary school. In total, SCORES will have had the pleasure of working with over 195 kids from 8 different elementary schools and even a few high school students who are still very much a part of the SCORES family.

Regarding the Douglas Park camp, Coach Dean (SCORES Soccer Director) expressed his delight:
“This year represented the widest range of school representation and this was sprinkled with high school SCORES alum. The fact that these kids are dying to come back day after day with parents setting up lawn chairs each day to watch is a testament to our enthusiastic coaches who make it fun for all the kids despite the wide range in skill level."
