There will be a variety of games scattered around (both indoors and outdoors), some classes and mini-tourneys scheduled, but the main idea is to have a relaxing day. We'll have open tables for you bring projects, and there's a roofed shelter nearby for messier activities.
Our site is a modern lodge building set
among beautiful forests, meadows, and plenty of space for outside
activities (weather permitting).
The site is dry.
Class information - Anyone interested in teaching should contact Xavier.
Currently scheduled classes:
Happy Japanese Games
Food / Lunch
Lunch will be available for $5. Lunch consists of:
Cabbage and noodles
Whole wheat rolls and butter
Fruit or cookies
Applesoft or sekanjabein
There's enough space to 'brown-bag', but any more elaborate prep
will probably occupy someone else's C&I space.

Directions: From Chicago take I-90 west to Randall Road. Take Randall north for 1.5 miles and turn left on Rt 72. Take that a mile to Tyrrell Rd and turn right. Tyrrell will curve and become Galligan, which (after 2 miles total) will bring you to Freeman Rd. Turn left onto Freeman – the site is one mile on your left. The sign says "Freeman Kame Forest Preserve" with the camp name smaller.
