Michael R. Lutz Family Center – Lakeview
Summer Day Camp

Summer is a time for relaxing outdoor fun, new adventures, budding friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.  Get all this and more with JCYS summer camps!   With so many different programs to choose from, find the experience, location and program length that works best for you and your family.

At the Michael R. Lutz Family Center in Lakeview, we offer two summer camp experiences:

Big City Day Camp

Ages: Kindergarten – 8th Grade
An urban day camp offering diverse activities and field trips, Big City Day Camp offers swim lessons with Red Cross certified instructors, weekly sessions with professional sport coaches, artists, musicians and yoga instructors, while college-educated counselors sprinkle in singing, cooperative games, dancing, and arts and crafts. Campers enjoy sun and sand at Chicago beaches, unique field trips with behind-the-scenes experiences, and cookouts with this one-of-a-kind urban camp adventure!


Sunflower Day Camp – Lakeview

Ages: 2 – 5 years old
JCYS starts the summer camp experience early with Sunflower Day Camp where our youngest campers enjoy age appropriate water activities, in-house field trips, and lots of fun outside where they enjoy arts and crafts, music, games and of course – playing with their friends.
