Hockey Summer Day Camp

When you think back to when you were a child, the memories that stick with you were more than likely created in the summer. The 3 month break from school meant there were even more times for you to partake in fun activities with friends and even make a new friend or two. At the Ice Valley Summer Day Camp last week, fun was had and new friendships were created.

With Hockey being the main theme of the camp, specific hockey drills, stretches and games were played and performed along with a variety of different activities that kept the 7-12 aged kids moving and enjoying themselves. Shown below are a few of the moments that were captured during the camp, and hopefully for the campers their memories will last a lifetime.

If your son or daughter is interested in attending the Hockey Summer Day Camp, we will be offering it again the week of July 18th and July 25th. Please call (815) 939-1946 for any questions you may have.

Rollerskating at Ice Valley Centre Ice Arena a new offering by the KVPD!

Children with inline skates

The Kankakee Valley Park District’s Ice Valley Centre would like everyone to dust off their
old roller skates and get ready for some fun at Friday Night Roller Skate from 7 – 9 p.m.
With the removal of the ice surface in early May, the concrete slab under the ice has given us a perfect surface for roller skating. Bring everyone in the family, as this is open to the public for patrons of all ages. Live music will be played during the two hours by the local band Saints to Ashes.  Unlike our Public Ice Skate sessions, we will not be able to supply rental skates. Even if you would not like to skate but would like to check out the band and the disco-like atmosphere, you are more than welcome! There will be a $5 charge for everyone at the door.
Hope to see you out at “RollerValley” Friday night! and click on the link for more details.
