Jon Vegosen Champ Camp

Debido a los continuos desafíos operativos provocados por la pandemia, no se podrá ofrecer el campamento de Champ Camp en este Verano del 2021. Tenemos la intención de reabrir el campamento de Champ Camp en el Verano del 2022 y esperamos verlos en ese momento. 

Gracias por entender los motivos de esta decisión.

Due to continuing operational challenges brought on by the pandemic, we will not be holding Champ Camp in Summer 2021. We intend on reopening Champ Camp in Summer 2022 and hope to see you then.

Thank you for your understanding.


Open to children entering 1st – 6th grades in the fall, JCYS Jon Vegosen Champ Camp offers summer afternoons full of tennis, swimming, and cooking lessons. This summer camp will not run in Summer 2020. Champ Camp particularly focuses on serving children from the District 112 community who might not otherwise have an affordable summer sports program in their neighborhood.  

Guided by the JCYS mission statement, Champ Camp puts education and recreation side by side: campers learn new skills and healthy habits while soaking up the joy and magic of summer at camp. Our counselors inspire children to try new sports and explore new foods that they might not be familiar with, while helping them build self-confidence. With one counselor to every 6 campers, children get plenty of individual attention and support while they take advantage of everything available at the JCYS Lillian L. Lutz Recreation Center (the Lil’) 

Facilities at the Lil’ include a Gaga pit, tennis courts, a state-of-the-art swimming pool, and a pool lodge for days when the weather doesn’t cooperate. And campers take advantage of it all: daily activities include USTA tennis lessons led by our tennis coach, Red Cross swimming lessons, cooking classes led by our nutrition specialist, arts and crafts, theater, dance, and more. Special camp-wide events like athletic competitions, Color Wars, and Talent Show build camp spirit as campers make new friends and discover their inner athlete. Each week, Friday Fun Days end the week with a burst of energy as campers enjoy activities like Halloween in the Summer and Wild Wild West Day.
