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 is designed to make sure each camper has lots of fun every day of the 11 weeks of camp by offering a variety of exciting outdoor activities (organized soccer with Soccer Shots, recreational basketball, traditional and new camp games, water activities-no swimming), indoor activities (crafts, games, movies, fun academic activities), and university activities (Nature Museum, Jr. Police Academy). 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 trips at an additional charge. Regular camp hours are 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, with the exception of holidays.

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.

Supplies

Campers should bring a backpack with a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day. All items should be labeled in permanent marker with your child's full name and carried in a small tote bag/backpack, also labeled in permanent marker 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.

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.
