Camp General Information
Campers entering Kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to spend a fun-filled summer with us at Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois! Our program promotes healthy living and self-esteem by engaging campers ages 5-11 in academic activities and safe outdoor learning experiences (e.g. organized soccer with Soccer Shots, recreational basketball, traditional and new camp games, indoor activities (crafts, games, movies, fun academic activities), and university activities (Nature Museum). Each day we offer campers a fun academic activity created by an Illinois licensed teacher (we do not offer individualized tutoring). This year, we will offer optional, local off-campus field trip to Lisle Lanes at an additional charge. Regular camp hours are 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
On February 1st, registration will begin on this website and will be open until each registration deadline or until capacity has been met for each session.
Payment is due in full at the time of registration for Spring Break Day Camp. We no longer accept deposits or payments at the start of a session. The registration deadline is 2 weeks prior to the Monday start of a session or until capacity has been met for each session.
For regular rates only, a full refund minus a $20 administrative fee per session per child will be honored if requests are made online before the registration deadline for each session (see registration deadline chart above). After a registration deadline, a 50% refund minus a $20 administrative fee per session per child will be honored if requests are made online up until the Friday prior to the session start. No refunds will be given the weekend before, the day of, or after a session starts. Refunds are not offered on discounted rates. Refunds will not be given if a child is dismissed from camp for behavioral misconduct.
These forms must be completed on or before March 23, 2018 per child to avoid a $15.00 late submission fee, this ensures each child's safety by identifying their needs prior to camp arrival.

Spring Break Day Camp provides parent notification with a written description of the situations when they will be notified of an illness, behavioral or injury of their camper with a signed report of the given situation and a phone call conversation when deemed necessary, such event that does not require immediate parent notification will be discussed at the end of camp day with parent (i.e. minor illness, behavioral or injury incident that is non-life threatening; a camper needs band-aid application, camper has a tummy ache and then states they feel better, and or camper does not follow a rule then makes a correction.)
Camp T-shirt & Gym shoes
For protection and easy identification, campers are REQUIRED to wear gym shoes and their official camp T-shirt every day. Extra T-shirts can be purchased for $10 each. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather.
Snack & Lunch
Campers should bring a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day to camp. Lunch is provided each day in Benedictine University's cafeteria. Campers are encouraged to select 2 healthy food choices (e.g. sandwich or steamed vegetables) prior to eating dessert. Beverage choices include a variety of juices, milk, and water.
Campers should bring a backpack with a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day. All items must be labeled in permanent marker with your child's full name and carried in a small tote bag/backpack, also labeled with your child's full name.
It is not necessary for a camper to bring any other items to camp. Other personal items brought for open recreation use (books, balls, gloves, etc.) are permitted, but these items will only be allowed during open recreation times and must be stored in their backpack otherwise. All items should be marked with the camper's full name. Small items such as playing cards, bouncy balls, etc. are not encouraged, as they are easily lost. Campers are responsible for their own items. Summer Fun Day Camp is not responsible for any items lost, damaged, or stolen.
Electronic devices such as cameras, iPods, or video game players are not allowed at camp. Any items which the Camp Director deems to be potentially dangerous, harmful or problematic are not allowed.
