Family Swim Parties

Swim Party

Grab your towels, swimsuit, beach balls - and don’t forget the family - as you join us for this free indoor water park evening of fun! A private rental of the three indoor pools at the Schaumburg Water Works in Schaumburg guarantees a night of fun, rain or shine, freezing blizzard or blistering heat! There is lots of swimming, mingling, splashing, mingling, slides, mingling, diving and – you guessed it – mingling, going on.  The concession stand is always available to purchase snacks.

These popular family outings are held in the heat of mid-summer and as some novel fun in mid-winter!  Call (847) 895-2100 or e-mail info@upsfordowns.org or check our online calendar for more information.

Do people with Down syndrome have feelings?

Yes. Just like everyone, people with Down syndrome have feelings. They can feel happy, silly, sad, sorry, or upset - just like you. People with Down syndrome enjoy friends and family and can be hurt when someone teases or makes fun of them - just like you.

Can I help my Friend?

Yes! Play with and talk to people with Down syndrome. If they are having trouble playing a game, give them time and a little extra help or ask them what game they would like to play. Be clear in what you are saying. Find out what your friend likes to do. Just hang out together and see what happens. You are more alike than you are different.
