I love the shoe selection here, but the service is terrible. Not any less expensive than anyplace else, and poor service. Workers have been flat out rude on a few different occasions, and indifferent at best.
delicious, good service, affordable, convenient, historical, did I mention delicious? one of my favorite places in chambana! Their breakfast is the BEST.
I LOVE AROMA. The environment is great. The staff is always friendly. Good food. Good coffee. Fast WiFi! Great to go study or to go and chat with friends for a while.
The people who work here are really knowledgable and helpful. Went in and found out my running shoes, which I'd been running in for a LONG time, were both worn out AND slightly too small. Found a great pair of Ascics, and could immediately run furter and faster. Have a good selection of swimwear as well, and generally have really good deals on them!
The only place in Chambana to get a good selection of outdoor gear with customer service to match!!!
This is definitely the best of all the GSCI's resident camps, and probably the best camp in Central Illinois (although admittedly I'm biased!) The waterfront is amazing. You won't find a better one for hundreds of miles around. Campers come home with greater self-confidence, more interest in being active, and more independence. They also come home with a million stories to tell about their new friends and crazy counselors with silly names. They'll also have new interests they may not have had before, like sailing, hiking, or tree identification!
The only draw back is that it is small. I wish there were more trails girls to explore. It's a good hike down to Pine Ridge and I think you can go a little ways past there, but I guess once you've done it once that's about it...
I'm wondering what the mom who complained about her child coming home with mosquito bites was thinking sending her child to a rustic camp if she was concerned about mosquito bites! I'll admit, mosquitos were pretty bad at Camp Peairs this past summer, but they were bad ALL OVER Central Illinois and the midwest at large. I guess if you don't want your child to come home with some scrapes or any mosquito bites you could send them to one of those camps that stay in dorms. Or just have them live in a bubble the rest of their lives...
