Chicago Camps

If you’re a working parent of a school-age child, summers mean sun, sand, short sleeves... and a scramble to fill your kid’s days with childcare. Chicago camps to the rescue! With as many camp options as there are types of kids, you’re sure to find one that caters to your child’s interests and keeps them entertained all summer.

 

How to find all your camp options? Attend our yearly Summer Camp Fair in the winter. (Yes, parents do start searching for camps that early.) You can learn more about finding the perfect camp for your child in our articles below, and use the Discussion Forum to find parent reviews of the most popular camps in the city.
