Lakefront Scholars is a summer camp dedicated to helping kids make academic progress through challenging, mentally stimulating activities and lessons. In addition to a lively, hands-on morning class session, we take daily excursions to exciting locations around Chicago. From theater workshops at acclaimed venues like Second City to robotics workshops and personalized glass-blowing demonstrations, we try our best to help form thoughtful, well-rounded young minds! We feel the best way to increase children’s engagement in the learning process is through direct and immediate application of classroom learning to a “real world” usage of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) concepts. We are passionate about tearing down the artificial walls between various academic subjects, and we think summer learning should be kinetic, energetic, and – most of all – fun!
Chicago has so much to offer, and we try to tap into as much of it as we can. In addition to attracting campers from all around the city, Our campers come from as far away as China and Europe. Besides building STEAM skills, we also help strengthen literacy skills for campers whose native language isn’t English. All of our instructors are experienced, state licensed instructors, and many of us are camp veterans ourselves! Lakefront Scholars offers both day camp and overnight “homestay” options. Our meals are delicious and healthy high quality offerings, and our class sizes are small. Small class sizes ensure that everyone gets tons of opportunities to participate.
