George W. Lutz Family Center - Highland Park
Summer Camps

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 George W. Lutz Family Center in Highland Park, we offer four different summer camp experiences:

North Shore Day Camp

Ages: Kindergarten – 6th Grade
There is something for everyone on the North Shore!  Over 200 campers enjoy daily swimming instruction and sports, music and drama, and arts & crafts, along with weekly field trips, overnighters and Friday Fun Days – all while creating camp memories that will last a lifetime.


NSDC Sports

Ages: 2nd – 7th Grade
Imagine a camp with an ideal sports training facility, a place where challenging campers is no sweat (for us!).  NSDC Sports offers a genuine sports camp experience, teamed with the spirit and sense of community that personifies our long-established day camp experiences. Each week, NSDC Sports campers participate in a variety of sports through skill drills, games and tournaments. Located at the Lillian L. Lutz Recreation Center, this sports camp has access to tennis courts, a heated pool for swim lessons and a sports court that can accommodate any game from basketball and tennis to flag football and soccer.


Sunflower Day Camp

Ages: 1 – 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 & crafts, music, games and, of course – playing with their friends.



Ages: 6 – 12 years old
Camp STAR, a joint effort by the Hyperactivity, Attention, and Learning Problems Clinic (HALP) at the University of Illinois at Chicago and JCYS, provides quality summer programming for children with ADHD and related disorders by blending an intensive therapeutic program with a fun summer camp experience.
