Campers entering Kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to spend a fun-filled summer with us at Benedictine University in Lisle!

Campers entering Kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to spend a fun-filled summer with us at Benedictine University in Lisle! Our program promotes healthy living and self-esteem by engaging campers ages 5 – 11 in academic activities and safe outdoor learning experiences. Outside, we participate in recreational basketball, traditional and new camp games, and water activities (but no swimming). Our indoor activities include crafts, games, movies, fun academic activities and university activities like going to the Jurica-Suchy Nature Museum.

Camp T-shirt & Gym Shoes

For protection and easy identification, campers are required to wear gym shoes and their official camp T-shirt every day. Extra T-shirts can be purchased for $10 each. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather.

Snack & Lunch

Campers should bring a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day to camp. Please check ingredients before sending your child with a snack as we will not be providing a snack if your child(ren) is not able to eat their own. If your child is not able to eat their snack, a note explaining the reason will be sent home with them. Lunch will be provided daily in our cafeteria. Campers are encouraged to select two healthy food choices such as a  sandwich, vegetables, fruit or salad prior to eating their one unhealthy meal. Desserts may be available upon the chef’s choice, as long as they are nut-free. Beverage choices include a variety of juices, milk and water.


Campers should bring a backpack with a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day. All items should be labeled in permanent marker with your child’s full name and carried in a small tote bag/backpack, also labeled with your child’s full name.

It is not necessary for a camper to bring any other items to camp. Other personal items brought for open recreation use such as books, balls and gloves are permitted, but these items will only be allowed during open recreation times and must be stored in their backpack otherwise. All items should be marked with the camper’s full name. We discourage small items such as playing cards and bouncy balls because they are easily lost. Campers are responsible for their own items. Summer Fun Day Camp is not responsible for any items lost, damaged or broken.

Electronic devices such as cameras, iPods or video game players are not allowed at camp. Any items the camp director deems to be potentially dangerous, harmful or problematic are not allowed.
