Boys and girls ages 5-13 entering grades Kindergarten - 8th grade (2016-2017 school year) 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 week by participating in a variety of exciting outdoor activities (organized soccer with Lil Kickers, 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 coordinated 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.

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 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.
