Description

Camp under the stars with the Chicago Park District! This program is designed with novice campers in mind and begins with staff assisting participating families in setting up tents provided by the Chicago Park District. The afternoon will include fun nature exploration like nature scavenger hunts, fishing (varies by location), lawn games, and a guided interpretive hike. Staff will provide information on campfire building and campfire safety as they build a camp fire for dinner. Hot dogs, buns, mustard, and ketchup are provided. Families are encouraged to bring sides and non-alcoholic drinks if they wish. After dinner, there will be time for lawn games and relaxing by the campfire. S'mores and night hikes will be the last guided activities before camp quiets down. Chicago Park District Camping Staff and Security will be onsite all night for support. Light morning activities and light breakfast will be offered before staff assist families in packing away tents and checking out.

Registration is $50 for a family team of up to 6 participants and includes the use of a tent, hot dogs, s'mores, light breakfast, and any program equipment. We request children attending are ages 6 and up. Check in and activities will begin at 2 pm on Saturday. Check out is at 10 am on Sunday.

Registration receipts will include detailed camp schedule and packing list.
