Grades 1-8 at Whitney Young and Homewood-Flossmoor High Schools. Wiz Kids Camps, the premier summer camp renowned for its commitment to academic excellence and athletic development, is excited to announce its expansion to Whitney Young High School for the summer of 2024. Wiz Kids Camps transforms the iconic school campus into a hub of learning, exploration and fun for students from first through eighth grade.

The camp has served families for 15 years at Homewood-Flossmoor High School where it will return again this summer along with the expansion to Whitney Young High School.

Wiz Kids Camps boasts a unique blend of Academic and Athletic Programming, taking place Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., plus field trips every Friday. The camp's tailored grade-specific programs are strategically designed to combat summer learning loss, cultivate friendships and bolster social skills. Extended care is also available.

For first through fourth grade participants, certified instructors lead engaging math and reading enrichment sessions aligned with Illinois academic standards, ensuring a sharp learning curve in a supportive and interactive environment. Meanwhile, fifth through eighth grade Wiz Kids benefit from daily academic sessions that go beyond the traditional curriculum, incorporating STEAM, entrepreneurship, financial literacy and debate to instigate curiosity and accelerate achievement.

Adding to the richness of the experience are diverse electives in fine arts, chess, coding, drama, and media production. These comprehensive enrichment programs unfold in unique maker space environments, equipped with the necessary assets to provide a transformative learning experience for all participants.

Complementing the academic focus, Wiz Kids Camps places a strong emphasis on fitness and athleticism. Core activities, overseen by seasoned coaches, include basketball, baseball, volleyball, cheer, track, tennis, tumbling, karate, soccer and swimming, catering to all skill levels from novice to high-performing enthusiasts.

Each exciting camp week concludes with thrilling field trips to venues such as the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Raging Waves, Enchanted Castle, Challenger Learning Center and the Museum of Surgical Sciences, promising unique and educational experiences for our summer participants.

Parents are encouraged to secure a spot for their children, ensuring they embark on a summer filled with academic growth, athletic development and unforgettable adventures.
