Big City Day Camp

For city kids who thrive on adventure, Big City Day Camp offers a summer full of discovery and exploration.

Big City Day Camp is based out of JCYS Lincoln Square Ravenswood. Campers spend time telling stories, crafting art projects, learning yoga poses, singing songs, and swimming! We also host virtual workshops where children learn about sports, arts and crafts, and more from top-notch experts. In past, we’ve worked with BrainArts Productions, Design Dance, Knuckleball Comedy, First Tee, among others. On Fridays, campers enjoy an inclusive Shabbat celebration. Children come home from Big City Day Camp excited, happy, and ready to talk your ear off about all their adventures!

Our fantastic staff members all bring their own special interests and talents to share with Big City Day Campers for a one-of-a-kind experience. Big City Day Camp at JCYS is staffed by experienced counselors from all different backgrounds, including music, acting, athletics, and dance. With our highly qualified staff and small group sizes, parents can rest assured that their child is in good hands.
