KYLE'S CAMPGROUND

Messenger Woods Homer Glen, Illinois
Nearly 200 of Kyle Zuleg's family members and friends came together for a campground dedication ceremony June 4 at Messenger Woods Nature Preserve.

Kyle was the victim of a tragic accident last fall at the preserve when a tree branch fell, killing him.

The Forest Preserve District of Will County Board passed a resolution that renamed Messenger Woods Hawks Hollow Campground the Kyle Zuleg Campground as a memorial tribute to Kyle and to honor the years of enjoyment the Zuleg family experienced camping at various Will County preserves.

At the dedication, the Rev. Ted Weitzel, formerly of St. Raphael Catholic Church in Naperville, greeted the audience and opened the ceremony with a prayer. Weitzel recognized family members who came to the dedication ceremony.

Cory Singer, president of the forest preserve board, spoke of the tragedy and the 16-year-olds attributes. Singer presented Kyle's parents, Matt and Jill Zuleg, with a framed copy of the resolution.

Kyle's cousin, Matt McKissick, read the text on the campground plaque.

While a tragic accident took Kyle's young life, what endures is the limitless impact that his presence had on all of those who were fortunate enough to have known him, the plaque reads in part.

The memorial plaque is posted at Messenger Woods on the campgrounds grove marker. The plaque includes a photo of Kyle. A park bench, also dedicated in Kyle's memory, was placed a few feet away and faces the plaque.
