Day & Academic Camp in Chicago's West Loop

Calling all happy campers! Registration is open for Summer 2024! Check out our Summer Camp Guide to view all offerings.

This summer we are excited to offer day & academic camps for ages 4-8. Camp runs from June 17 - August 16 and costs $525/week+. Camp hours are 8:45 am - 3:00 pm (Monday-Friday) with extended hours available.

Camp Mission

At Bennett Day Camp, we provide an enriching atmosphere that enables our campers to develop self-identity, leadership skills, and a lifelong sense of adventure. Our campers and counselors will participate in neighborhood explorations, team sports, music, arts, scientific discovery, and water play in a collaborative culture.

Camp Highlights

Camper Input
Each morning, campers will participate in art, movement, and STEM activities based on the theme of the week. In the afternoon, Campers get to “choose their own adventure” with afternoon choices. Options include, but aren’t limited to, sewing and textiles, photography, slime time, coding, engineering, basketball, soccer, flag football, and badminton!

Park Trips
We love spending as much time outdoors as possible! We will take walking trips to local parks 1-2 times a week for open play and games.

Water Wednesdays
On Water Wednesdays, campers will escape the heat with water relays, slip 'n slide fun, water balloon games, and more!

At Bennett Day Camp we know plans change! We pride ourselves on the flexibility we provide to campers and their families. Our Refund Policy allows families to receive a full refund up until the very first day of camp.

Camp Hours
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (with Before and After Care available)

Lunch Included

Lunch and occasional sweet treats are included for all full-day campers. Campers are encouraged to bring their own snacks! Bennett Day Camp always provides a vegetarian option and can accommodate most allergies. Campers can also bring a lunch from home. Bennett is a nut-free facility. Lunch is provided through Monarch Catering, the same company that provides lunch to Bennett Day School students during the school year.

Camp Staff

Bennett students will see familiar teaching and auxiliary faces working throughout the summer and new campers will be welcomed with open arms. Our camp counselors are committed to creating a fun, safe, and welcoming environment for all!
