Event Summary

WCF effectively manages the planning and
execution of the picnic (including site selection,
permit acquisition, event itinerary, catering,
transportation, etc.) to ensure the event is a
tremendous success.  WCF provides an
extraordinary summer picnic with electricity in the
air, packed activity areas and a variety of
interactive entertainment for guests of all ages. 
WCF does not merely set up the event, but
instead, actively facilitates the event and activities
to ensure guests have a great time and remain
engaged throughout the entire event.  If guests
are not engaged and merely leave after eating,
the key objectives listed above are not achieved.                           

The entertainment selection is designed to engage
the three key age groups attending the
event - 20-30 somethings without kids, 30-40
somethings with kids and 40-60 somethings with
kids that are not attending.  It is critical to ensure
the activities are designed to target each
age group so that each group feels the
event is designed for them and not just families
with young children.  To ensure each group has
entertainment, WCF divides the entertainment into
four main categories:  “Interactive Relays”,
“Facilitated Traditional Sports”, “Passive or Walkup
Entertainment” and “Entertainment Add-ons”.
Regardless of each attendee’s interests, WCF
provides an array of activities capable of providing
many entertainment options for everyone.  Best
of all, WCF’s expert staff are all hired with
experience in facilitating youth programs and
birthday parties, ensuring the children are well
taken care of throughout the day and parents
are able to mingle and relax at the event.

And if that isn’t enough, if desired, WCF creates a customized website for each client highlighting the event details, location, directions and more.

"Green" Picnics

As a friendly reminder to our clients...

WCF along with its catering and venue partners continue to improve their recycling efforts to be "green" at all events.  From starch based utensils and plates to bottle and can recycling, WCF hopes to make a difference at its events.

Please join WCF in helping to make a positive difference in the environment.

Thank you.

 

Grand Re-Opening for the UIC Picnic Grove

Despite the cold, hard winter, this summer is set to be the best one ever at the UIC Picnic Grove.  UIC has been busy this offseason with a full scale renovation of its baseball field and surrounding grounds. 

This summer, WCF and UIC are excited to unveil the newly renovated UIC Picnic Grove with freshly landscaped grounds, a brand new entrance walkway, updated sand volleyball courts and more!  Add in its existing award-winning softball fields and the UIC Picnic Grove has once again solidified itself as one of the best private downtown locations for summer picnics.
