Summer Camp Guide
The trees may still be bare, but the sun is shining! It gives us all a little more reassurance that, even when it feels like winter may never end, summer really is on its way.
And with sunny days ahead, it's time to start mapping out summer fun! Summer camps in the Tri-County area gives kids the chance to get out and play, and explore our surroundings through a huge array of interests whether it be the creative arts, physical challenges, or getting outdoors with camp buddies.
Camp Y-Koda, Camp Manitou, Maywood, and Camp Evelyn are all geared up to keep your kids summer zinging with action. From Zombie Camp, to Jedi Juniors, to CSI Academy and World of Wizardry and Harry Potter, the summer camps offered have all the bases covered. New campers can test the waters with day camp fun, with overnight camps offered for more experienced campers. And when was the last time you went camping?! There's even family camp nights for everyone to join in the fun! Make it a summer adventure without worrying about a crowded campsite or hauling your own truck-full of activities.
Do you have ones that are too small to spend a whole day away, but still ready for exploration? Check out the creative offerings for half-day camps for toddlers from JMKAC, and Preschoolers at Bookworm Gardens & Rahr West Art Museum.
Calling all animal lovers! Sneak a peek behind the scenes at Zoo Camps offered at Lincoln Park Zoo. Or spend some hours sploshing and sloshing at the pond catching fogs, tadpoles and more at a variety of camps offered at Woodland Dunes Nature Center.
There's even a camp for beginning roller skaters, from ages 2 and up!
