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.

At the Old Town School Summer Camp, children feel safe to be themselves as they become active learners in our camp's community-focused and family-oriented atmosphere. Our campers are surrounded by a diverse and extremely talented staff of teachers and counselors who encourage their students to connect to our fine arts-based curriculum in a variety of deep and exciting ways, all while gaining artistic confidence and learning how to bring creativity, joy, and artistic energy into everything they do.

Summer Camp Pricing

The price for Camp 2015 will be $1600 for each 4-week session, with extended hours for an additional $500 per session.


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 West 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.
