I remember a small fish pond and garden. I think you could enter it through the chapel. I have wonderful memories of day camp…getting on a bus and going to adventures: A dairy, can’t remember the name, Cermak Pool, Brookfield Zoo and the Trailside Museum. Arts and crafts in the first floor activity rooms and the monkey bars. I remember Ms. Norbus…I’m sure I’m misspelling her name…she was sweet. Any other day campers out there? Thanks for the info, Larry.
I spend most of my childhood in and around there, played in the old sandbox. I lived at 1561 Springfield, in the old courtway building on the corner of 16th St. until 1971.
thanks for checking out the video. there are over 600 more you may find interesting.
