    Summer Camp is our JAM, it’s what we were born to do…and we LOVE to get your kids excited about the environment! Every week is different at Green Explorers Club, and each day with us involves a ton of hands-on projects, games, and guided outdoor exploration.  Kids learn and explore topics such as endangered animals, ecosystems around the globe, and how they can be sustainable at home and in their communities.  Our five rotating themes include Nature in Chicago, Animals Around the World, Our Changing Planet, Sustainable Kids and Endangered Species. More information on these themes can be found below!

    Sustainable Kids

    Campers take a deep dive in to what it means to be sustainable. We will meet experts who work in a variety of sustainable careers, learn the ins and outs of the CTA, take a field trip to Lake Michigan to test the water quality and clean the beach, plant a kitchen garden, and practice ways that kids can be sustainable at home.

    Animals Around The World

    Campers spend the week exploring animals around the globe and the different ecosystems that they call home. We will travel to all seven continents and see how animals live and play around the world. Daily themes include Oceans, Deserts, Rainforest, Wetlands, the Polar Regions, Forests and Grasslands.

    Our Changing Planet

Kids will walk through some of the real-world problems facing our planet and work toward finding solutions that protect our earth.

    Endangered Species

    Campers will explore what is causing plants and animals to be vulnerable and what we can do to help. We will start the week learning what extinction is by studying the dinosaurs and will spend the rest of the week traveling to different continents to understand the different reasons why extinction occurs and what kids can do to protect endangered animals.

    Testimonials

    • AmitDad to Devan
      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Green Explorers Club hosted the birthday party for my 3 year old son and about 20 of his friends. They did a FANTASTIC job! They had fun educational events every 20 mins to keep the kids engaged and moving. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. Several parents commented on how well planned everything was and how the kids were engaged. They also took care of the goodie bags and helped with the cake. The team was very flexible and helpful. You could tell they had experience dealing with kids this age. It was one of the best experiences we've had throwing a birthday party. We highly, highly recommend Green Explorers Club."

    • KateMom to Brady

      "We’re always trying to challenge Brady to try new things and so he spent the last two days at camp at Green Explorers Club and he had a blast. He learned all kinds of fun things about coyotes and nature in Chicago and he came home with all kinds of treasures. Thanks to all the teachers for making the last two days so much fun! If your kiddos love nature and you’re looking for something outside of the normal sports camp, etc, check it out!"

    • JackieMom to Felipe and Maria Fernanda
      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "My two kids are finishing up the first week of camp and have loved it! I particularly have been impressed with the educational component woven into a day of adventure and play. I'm so happy we found this camp!"
    • NicoleMom to Zachary
      ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "My five-year old son loved the Animals Around the World week of summer camp he did here! He came home excited to share all that he’d learned every day and learned lots of new info- which is impressive for this animal obsessed lil’ dude! In his words,  I already knew tons about animals, but I didn’t know much about WHERE they lived, like ecosystems and habitats. My only regret was signing up for half day instead of full day because every day he was bummed to leave. We’ll definitely be doing full day when we sign up for August!"
