Summer BASE Camp 2014 was a huge hit, with nearly 900 camp slots filled -- up 30% versus last year. Campers architected and acted, built and biked, coded and created, dissected and danced, filmed and floated, invented and improvised, photographed and painted, and more! Thank you to our participating families, terrific teachers and counselors, and generous business supporters. Kudos also to our hosts, District 97 and Oak Park's Public Works Center.
