Sunflower Camp

Sunflower campers take advantage of all the amenities available at JCYS Buffalo Grove during the school year, including our toddler gym, dance room, full-sized indoor gym, and securely enclosed outdoor playgrounds with age-appropriate facilities. For extra summer fun, we turn on the rainbow sprinkler outside so campers can splash around to cool off.  

Campers also love our catered meals and snacks, featuring fresh, colorful food made from scratch with local ingredients. We serve organic milk to all our campers and make sure each child gets enough nutritious food for a full day of adventures. 

Behind all the fun of Sunflower Camp are the caring early childhood staff at JCYS Buffalo Grove and all the know-how of a first-class preschool. Sunflower Camp rooms are led by our qualified and dedicated school-year staff. With a low staff-to-child ratio, campers get plenty of individual attention – and children who regularly attend preschool at JCYS Buffalo Grove will feel right at home with the same classroom teachers from the school year.

Infant Sunflower Camp

Infants age 6 weeks through 14 months participate in summer activities in an age-appropriate manner while receiving care from our expert infant staff. Please see the JCYS Buffalo Grove Infant Care page here for more details about our infant program.  

Toddler and Preschool Sunflower Camp

Our toddler and preschool campers get a fun-filled introduction to summer adventures at Sunflower Camp, where campers enjoy arts and crafts, music, sports, and fun in the water.  

Program Highlight: Theme Weeks

Theme weeks at Sunflower Camp give campers the chance to explore new places, environments, and ideas – from “Yes to the Mess” to “Magical Mystery Tour” to “Red, White, & You” week, our themes incorporate in-house field trips* that provides a balance between entertainment and an introduction to community helpers. All campers also participate in daily themed activities, like a special art project, game, or book.

*Due to the pandemic, we will not be hosting in-house field trips.
