BASE Summer Camp is designed for our youth to grow, increase self-confidence, self-esteem, take risks, broaden their horizons and discover new strengths, all while developing values, respect and forming new friendships along the way! BASE summer camp is offered for campers to have a safe, fun and memorable summer.
Our summer plans include weekly themes, daily activities to coordinate with those themes, creative arts and crafts, games, camp songs, sports, healthy kids activities (yoga, dance, aerobics, etc) water games, visiting the Gordon Park Splash pad and in house contracted entertainment. We will not be offering field trips this summer.
BASE camp will provide every opportunity for campers to fully engage in all activities and strive for their emotional, social and athletic potential. We look forward to seeing your camper this summer making new friends and having a safe fun summer!
Our camp ratios are a 1 counselor to 8 campers. The counselors are trained in CPR and 1st aid, they go through a counselor training the week before camp begins and help set up the camp location. The counselors who will transport the campers to Gordon Park for water activity “Splash Pad” day are 21 and over and have had a drivers abstract conducted to ensure they are eligible to drive the Park District vehicles.
Campers will receive a T-shirt. Please wear that on Splash Pad days when we travel off site. Thank you!
