Infant Sunflower Day Camp

Infants age 6 weeks through 15 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 Day Camp

Our newest campers get a fun-filled introduction to summer adventures at JCYS Sunflower Day Camp, where campers through age 3 enjoy arts and crafts, music, sports, and fun in the water.  

Summer at Sunflower Day Camp also includes weekly in-house “field trips” – we bring the fun right here to JCYS Buffalo Grove. In the past, we’ve brought in a petting zoo, reptile show, and expert coaches from Amazing Athletes – this year’s program includes visits from a story bus, a fire truck, and Noggin Builders 

Every Friday, Sunflower campers come together for an inclusive Shabbat celebration at 9:30 a.m. We welcome children of all faiths to sing, dance, learn about Shabbat traditions, and enjoy a morning snack of challah and grape juice. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members are all invited to join us during this special time.  

Program Highlights: Theme Weeks

Theme weeks at Sunflower Camp give campers the chance to explore new places, environments, and ideas – from trying out STEM activities during Build-It Week to reading new books for Storyland Week to leaning about other countries for “It’s a small World” Week. We redecorate our beautiful atrium every week to match the theme and campers help make a themed snack. All campers also participate in a daily themed activity, like a special art project, game, or book.

Experienced Staff and a Beautiful Facility

Behind all the fun of Sunflower Day Camp is the caring early childhood staff at JCYS Buffalo Grove and all the know-how of a first-class preschool. Sunflower Day Camp rooms are led by our qualified and dedicated school-year staff. With a low staff-to-child ratio, Sunflower 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. 

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.  

Sunflower 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. 

A $150 non-refundable deposit must be provided at the time of registration and will be applied toward your camp fees. 50% of your remaining camp fee is due April 15, 2018 (you are welcome to pay this prior to April). The balance is due May 15, 2018. Registration is complete once we receive your $150 non-refundable deposit.
