Big City Day Camp

Big City Day Camp
Campers have fun exploring the great city of Chicago at Big City Day Camp!  With weekly field trips that offer unique behind-the-scenes experiences, this urban day camp also offers a diverse array of activities with professional sport coaches, artists, musicians and yoga instructors.  Swim lessons are provided by Red Cross certified instructors and campers also enjoy Chicago beaches and waterparks.  Our college-aged counselors sprinkle in singing, cooperative games, dancing and arts and crafts, and each Friday is made special when we celebrate the Jewish tradition of Shabbat and cook out for lunch.

In age-appropriate groups, campers build socialization and physical skills in a safe and exciting environment, with a 1:7 counselor camper ratio for our Kindergarten Trekkers, and never exceeding 1:10 for our oldest campers, the 5th – 8th Grade Rovers.   This camp truly is a one-of-a-kind urban adventure.

Big City Day Camp is the BEST thing going in Chicago right now.  Such a hidden gem! Miller no longer likes the weekend because he doesn’t want camp to end!
