The camp adventure begins here! Beginner Campers will join the larger camp group for daily opening assemblies but then split off into their own age-appropriate activities. These include outdoor exploration and free play, as well as story time, science, Bible Time, and art activities. Outdoor fun includes water play and periodic visits to the Grayslake Central Park and Jones Island.
Entering Grades 2–7 in the fall
Your campers are going to have a ton of fun with age-appropriate activities to challenge all areas of growth! Activities that complement our weekly themes include gym games, art, cooking, drama, outdoor team games, water play, Bible Time, brain games, STEM, and wilderness exploration, to name a few. This group will go swimming at the Grayslake Aquatic Center (at no extra cost) on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and have opportunities to go fishing and play at local parks.
Campers in grades 6–7 will have an option to join the CIT (Campers In Transition) program for a portion of the day. CIT is designed for campers who are interested in taking on leadership roles. They will assist counselors with younger campers or other camp activities.
LIT Program (Leaders In Training)
Entering Grades 8–10 in the fall
Is your teen too old for camp but too young to work? Leaders In Training is designed to help them develop valuable job and leadership skills as they act as assistant counselors with younger campers and take on necessary responsibilities involved with check-in and check-out time, our snack store, lunch program, and administrative work. LITs will receive job training and time to enjoy favorite camp activities and outings with peers.
