World Camp Activities
An International Experience
Each of our language partners prepare fun, immersive activities to make the most of your child's experience at World Camp.
Covering topics such as Performing Arts, Sports, Cooking, STEAM, Chess and more, each activity created by our partners provide World Campers with a range of language learning opportunities. Combined with outdoor water games and gardening, World Camp strives to expand your child's horizons and make the most of their summer vacation.
Field Trips Day
Explore the City, Explore the World
Every Tuesday, World Campers explore the city and the Chicagoland area through field trips to farms, zoos, gardens, museums, water parks and more. Campers explore a different area of the city, alternating locations each Tuesday to ensure fun and safe field trips for everyone. All campers will also have the opportunity to visit a local waterpark once per session for an afternoon of fun, in addition to Friday beach days.
With over 15 years of experience and teams of trained professionals, these outings provide a safe, fun opportunity for exploration across Chicago.
* Due to Juneteenth and July 4th, session one field trips will take place on Wednesdays. Beach days will still continue on Friday
Water Park Days
A Summer of Fun
During each session, all World Campers will visit a local water park at least once as part of their Field Trip day. With slides, pools and water games, this outing provides supervised summer fun to each student.
The water park includes trained lifeguards, in addition to our World Camp staff, to ensure a safe experience for all campers.
Beach Day BBQs
In addition to Festival Days, every Friday World Camp students take part in a Beach Day field trip followed by a BBQ picnic. This experience allows campers to continue building bridges, form new friendships and explore the city.
This 15-year tradition is a favorite among World Campers, providing them a safe, fun field trip with experienced professionals.
Festival Days at World Camp
To build bridges between campers, languages and cultures, a camp wide festival is organized at the end of each session. Taking place on the last Thursday of each session (July 3, July 25, August 15), each student has the opportunity to showcase their camp accomplishment. Activities include musical or theatre performances, art showcases and more.
Festival Days allow students to expand their horizons not only through language, but through new cultural discoveries. Centered around our "Cities of the World" theme and uniting students, Festival Days offer an exciting end to every camper's World Camp journey.
