Summer Camp for Kids

Music, art, theater, dance, movement, social studies, science, history, outdoor play and more - specifically crafted for 6 – 10 year olds

Summer Camp at the Old Town School is an enriching, exciting, and educational way for your child to experience the summer in Chicago! Both sessions of the program are specifically crafted for 6-10 year olds, and include music education, visual arts, theater, dance, movement, social studies, science, history, outdoor play and more. Our summer camp environment is one in which children will learn to think independently, work cooperatively, and discover their own creativity. We encourage our campers to work both individually and in groups, thereby learning to appreciate other's skills as well as their own.

Our campers are surrounded by a diverse and extremely talented staff of teachers and counselors who encourage campers to learn in a variety of ways. We offer a program rich in teaching styles, and we strive to connect personally with all of the children in the program.

At the Old Town School Summer Camp, children feel safe to be themselves as they become avid, active learners in our camp's community-oriented and family-oriented atmosphere. It is our hope that, through our program, your child will learn how to bring creativity, joy, and artistic energy into everything they do -- and it is our hope that it is this strength that they will use to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others, both now and in the future.

Summer Camp for 4 & 5 Year Olds

Old Town School also has a drop-off summer camp for little ones 4 and 5 years old. Led by Camp Director Lindsay Weinberg and four teaching artists, children get lots of attention in small groups as they explore the arts in our studios, classrooms, and concert hall at our vintage 909 Armitage location. This camp runs Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. Camp begins at 9:00 AM and pickup is at 11:30 AM.
