(almost) Summer

Family Picnic

Summer is almost here and we are thrilled to announce the CGCC (almost) Summer Picnic. This year we have rented a cabin with an indoor restroom  in addition to a picnic shelter and a fire pit!  Come meet other families with gifted children in Chicagoland, and enjoy some fun!  We will have a family scavenger hunt for you to complete. Several of our professional members will have activities available and look forward to meeting you. You will also be able to meet board members of the Chicago Gifted Community Center, and share your wishes for our organization.

The picnic is free for CGCC families and supporters, as it is underwritten by membership fees. Others are very welcome to join us and see what a great group we are, but we ask that they pay a nominal $10 fee per family. These fees are non-refundable. 

Steps to take:

  1. Please register for the picnic now.  For planning purposes we need to know that you are considering coming! 
  2. Pack a lunch for your family. 
  3. Bring a dessert item to share. (Given the incidence of allergies in our community, please prepare a note card indicating whether your item contains gluten, nuts or peanuts.)
  4. Find and bring all your picnic enjoyment paraphernalia - frisbees, kites, baseball gear, bubble makers, bug spray, sunscreen, etc. 
  5. Also bring other things that your kids love to do to share with others, such as tabletop games or legos. 

We look forward to seeing you there.  Rain or shine!

Please contact Niamh with any questions or concerns.
