Welcome to Fred's Camp

The #1 Day Camp for Summer Fun in the Chicago Sun Since 1994!

Fred's Camp has the key ingredients to make your child’s summer special. We encourage a warm family atmosphere at camp. We provide personalized attention to each camper’s individual needs. We recognize and respect our campers as unique individuals and provide a flexible and challenging program designed to enrich their development.



Week Eight - Friday

Another spectacular summer at Fred's Camp has come to an end.  Today was a day of goodbyes, but with the promise of reunions next summer.  The energy at camp today was electric, everyone was excited for the Carnival and for all of the end of camp activities.  Senior Camp crowned the 2014 King and Queen, and the winners were (drumroll please) Jonah and Alana!  Pictures of their crowning ceremony are on the Facebook page.  Throughout the entire day the carnival was going on in the quad.  There were games and activities for all ages.  One thing is for certain, every had a great time!  Check out and extensive photo diary of the entire event on the Facebook page.  At Fred's Camp we feel truly fortunate to have the opportunity to share our summer with your children.  We would like to thank you for all of your support throughout the summer.  We also would be unable to be what we are without the best counselors in the city, thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put in day in and day out.  We cannot wait to see your children again next summer as we continue to strive to create a safe, fun place for all!  Have a great school year!



Week Eight - Thursday

It's hard to believe but there is only one more day of Fred's Camp!  It was a very busy day today even though Senior Camp wasnt here.  The Senior Camp sleepover was a rousing success.  Although they said that they got plenty of sleep last night, their bleary faces this morning gave them away!  While Senior Camp was recovering, Junior Camp celebrated the day by wearing their pajamas to camp, there were some really comfortable campers and counselors.  This afternoon the second graders wowed us all with an amazing group talent show.  Make sure you check out the Facebook page for pictures of all of todays events as well as some from last night's sleepover.  There is a fantastic carnival scheduled tomorrow, but if your camper is regularly scheduled to swim they are still swimming so make sure they still bring their suits!


Week Eight - Monday

It's hard to believe, but we have begun the final week of Fred's Camp for 2014.  It has been a wonderful summer with many old friends, new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.  We have a busy week lined up to send out the summer with a bang.  This morning the kindergartners had a sports and games tournament where an all-time Fred's Camp record was broken.  We are proud to announce that the campers in group KG posted an unprecedented 11 second time in the ball passing event!  Congratulations KG!  Elsewhere around camp the 2nd graders and Senior Camp practiced for their upcoming talent show and their acts are going to be pretty impressive.  The tweens spent the day at Nickel City beating all of the games!  There is so much left to do this week so make sure that you stay tuned to see what will happen next!




Week Seven - Thursday

It was a beautiful day and we took full advantage of it at Fred's Camp today!  In Senior Camp we are so close to knowing who will be king and queen of Fred's Camp for 2014.  Check back tomorrow to find out the results!  Today was superhero day at Senior Camp so counselors and campers alike showed up in their best superhero regalia.  This afternoon Junior Camp participated in a massive olympic competition on Wish Field.  There were six different events going on around the field and over 150 campers in all participating.  The olympics went on without a hitch and everyone had a great time.  Check out Facebook to see all of the smiling faces!



Week Seven - Wednesday

Another fabulous day at Fred's Camp.  Junior Camp had fun in the sun at the water park all day, it was the perfect day for it!  Back at camp it was and early Halloween for Senior Camp.  The counselors all had their costume parade to start the day, there were some pretty incredible costumes.  There was even a mischevious spider man who was causing a hubbub at the beginning of the day as people were trying to get into camp!  The tweens tie-dyed shirts in the morning to create a lasting memory of all of the great times that they have had this summer at camp.  It has been a great group this year!  The forcast for the rest of the week is beautiful so we are looking to close out this week in style!
