Campers have fun exploring the great city of Chicago 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.

Campers build social and physical skills in a safe and exciting environment. 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. A one-of-a-kind urban adventure.

Registration links will be posted here shortly!


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!
