Sunflower Day Camp

JCYS Wicker Park starts the summer camp experience early with Sunflower Day Camp! Our youngest campers enjoy classic summer fun with experienced early childhood staff members who give each child individual attention and care. In a typical day at Sunflower Camp, campers might take a trip to the playground, create a finger paint masterpiece, learn a new song in circle time, and splash around the rooftop play space to cool off with friends. In between the daily activities, JCYS Wicker Park hosts in-house “field trips” featuring special guests like a DJ for a rooftop dance party or a petting zoo where children can meet a sheep for the first time. Campers age 3 and up also take outside field trips to the zoo and local museums.

Art Week at Wicker Park

Sunflower Day Camp at JCYS Wicker Park highlights different theme weeks that deepen learning enrichment. For example, during color week, we learn about all the colors of the rainbow, and during food week, campers explore different foods. Each day features special themed activities like art projects, sing-alongs, or field trips, along with classic summer camp activities.

Campers at Sunflower Day Camp also take advantage of the great programs we host at JCYS Wicker Park throughout the school year, including weekly yoga, music classes with our music specialist, and soccer lessons offered through Super Soccer Stars. Food for Sunflower campers is catered by Food2You, a local Logan Square caterer. Half-day campers receive a morning snack and hot lunch; full-day campers also get an afternoon snack.
