Camper Application

Summer in the City is a non-residential art and adventure dedicated to helping young people discover treasure in Chicago, themselves, and other people. Campers must be in third through seventh grade to participate.

The camp is three weeks long, Mondays-Fridays, July 9-27, and one Sunday morning, July 29 at St. James Cathedral, 65 E Huron, Chicago, IL 60611 with staffed, round-trip transportation to camp provided each day from a South Side pick up point.

It is Chicago’s most affordable summer program for youth because over three-quarters of the cost are underwritten by the generosity of the St. James community, allowing families that can not pay the subsidized cost to request scholarships. The application fee is $20 and the registration fee is $450. Full and partial scholarships are available for qualifying applicants.
