Road Closure Notice-Wenzel Road

     24th Street/Wenzel Road will be closed for a few months to accommodate construction improvements. The road will be closed from Chartres Street in La Salle to the east of Faith Church in Peru, where Wenzel Road becomes a three-lane road. Faith Church, 800 Wenzel Road, will remain open to traffic. The exact length of time the street will remain closed will be weather dependent during construction.


For 2022 we will be utilizing online signups for our programs summer camps. Below is a week-by-week outline of camps being offered this summer. A sign-up link is provided where applicable.

Many camps are free to Peru residents! If there is a fee it will be listed in the description. Nonresidents are invited and welcome, with an additional low cost of only $10 (exception- Saddle Up Camp). Payment is due the first day of the camp, if applicable.

*** Please only sign up one participant per slot and try to sign up early, to help the instructors better prepare. If all slots are filled and you would still like to participate, please call Seth Brannan @ (815) 681-8600.
