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, (recreational basketball, traditional and new camp games, water activites - no swimming), indoor activities (crafts, games, movies, fun academic activities), and university activities (Nature Museum).

Regular camp hours are 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, with the exception of holidays.

This year we are excited to annouce that we have partnered with Bricks 4 Kidz! Bricks 4 Kidz will be coming to campus twice a week* to work with each group one time for a two hour session during the week.* Bricks 4 Kidz workshops are interactive and hands-on, where kids discover, explore, invent and create using LEGO® bricks, gears, and motors. Workshops incorporate building and exploring STEM concepts through motorized creations, model figure builds, mosaics, games & collaborative challenges. Each weekly workshop incorporates a FUN theme that the activities are centered around. Bricks 4 Kidz programs are aligned with Next Generations Science Standards and also teach Essential 21st century skills – Teamwork/Collaboration, Creativity, and Problem Solving.

*See chart above for sessions Bricks 4 Kidz will be joining us.

*Group days have yet to be determined and are subject to change per week.
