Chicago Summer Camps Guide: Summer Day Camp and Overnight Camp Directory

NOTE REGARDING CAMPS AND COVID-19: (updated May 24)
ChicagoKids.com has maintained the Chicago area’s #1 Camp Guide for nearly 20 years. We are keeping our camp guide online in the state that is was in March 2020, as it would be nearly impossible to rebuild for 2021 if we remove all cancelled camps.

To address this summer’s camp cancellations and the addition of online options, we have created a separate Virtual Camp Guide for online camp options. And as local camps determine their ability to hold modified in-person camps, we will add indicators within this camp guide as to which camps are planning to take place


Find details on the best summer camps for kids in Chicago and suburbs. Choose from day camps, overnight camps, cooking camps, sports camps, art camps, music camps, theater camps, science and technology and STEM camps, and other special needs and activity camps.
