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

Summer is not canceled! However, this is a summer like no other. Some camps are going virtual, some are creating small group options, and others are making the difficult decision not to hold camp.

We’re working hard to keep up with this continuously evolving camp season. Since things are changing so rapidly, we recommend checking with each camp to confirm their current status. Scheduled start dates and in-person plans are subject to change.

If you’re not yet ready for in-person camps, search our new Virtual Camp Guide for options that you can enjoy from home.


Find details in our annual Summer Camp Guide 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.
