Our popular summer camp is focused on fun, and each day is jam-packed with summer adventures at school and all over the city. Kids participate in water games, outdoor sports, arts and crafts, magic shows and much more. Three days a week, we hit the road for field trips to places like Montrose Beach, Shedd Aquarium, Funtopia Adventure Park, mini-golf and a variety of waterparks in the Chicagoland area.
A team of our regular classroom teachers leads the camp, so campers have the comfort of familiar faces and parents are assured that trusted adults are supervising the children. Middle school students have the option of helping out as junior counselors.
Summer’s Cool fills the gap between the end of school and the start of other camps and commitments, making the transition to summer easier and less stressful for families. To give families maximum flexibility, campers can be enrolled by the day, the week, or the entire 3-week session.
Camp is open to all currently enrolled NPES students from kindergarten through 8th grade, and there is a separate Junior Summer’s Cool for preschoolers. Non-NPES students are occasionally admitted with a letter of recommendation from a current NPES family.
Summer’s Cool runs Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm with before and after care options available. Our Junior Summer’s Cool camp also offers half-day options (field trips are not available for this age group).
