Hoot Camp

Hoot Camp is an exciting introduction to elementary school and is available to all incoming kindergarteners in Park Ridge. All Hoot Camp instructors are certified teachers. 

Hoot Camp consists of a fun-filled four-week curriculum full of activities and lessons that will help prepare your child for kindergarten. Each day, children will participate in activities that will help develop their confidence in reading readiness and math skills, social/emotional growth, and fine & gross motor skills. Hoot Camp provides a balance of learning and having fun, all while meeting new friends! Hoot Camp runs during most of the month of July (closed on July 4th).

For students who are registered for Hoot Camp, summer EXTRAS is an add on. It provides: 

  • The ability to drop your child off an hour earlier for Hoot Camp and spend that time at Summer EXTRAS.
  • Attend Hoot Camp in the morning and EXTRAS in the afternoon.
  • An escort to/from each program when one ends and the other begins.

Information about HOOT Camp is emailed during the month of March to parents/guardians of students who register to begin kindergarten the following year. Payment information will be posted on Community Pass.
