Your Summer Adventure
Summer adventures begin at an early age at the North Shore Country Day School. For over 65 years, the Day Camp has provided enriching experiences. The Day Camp's diverse programs allow for all campers to try new activities in a setting where individual growth is fostered by a caring staff. The goal is to actively involve all campers while offering encouragement and support as they tackle new endeavors.

We offer group instruction in archery, arts & crafts, creative play, dance, gymnastics, outdoor adventures (includes rock climbing) and tennis. Offerings depend on age of camper.
We offer daily swim lessons. Canoeing and sailing are activities for our 8 – 10-year-old campers. Canoeing and sailing take place at Lloyd Beach in Winnetka.
The Day Camp's archery program is taught under the auspices of the Camp Archery Association. This program is for our campers ages 7 – 10 years. An emphasis on safety is an integral part of this program.
Arts and Crafts
Everyone participates in arts & crafts. Age-appropriate projects keep the campers busy twice a week in this creative program.
This activity is geared for our campers ages 4 – 6 years. It is an exploration of singing, dancing, acting and role playing. Campers participate as a group in a wide range of creative activities.
Our gymnastics program is led by a qualified gymnastic instructor. Instruction is geared for our campers ages 4 – 6 years and emphasizes stretching, tumbling and low beam exercise.
This program is for our campers ages 7 – 10 years and emphasizes an awareness of nature. As a group, campers learn skills that emphasize teamwork and trust. As a part of the program, campers are given instruction in rock climbing.
Everyone swims at the Day Camp! Using the National Safety Council's "Learn to Swim" program, every camper—non-swimmer to competitive swimmer—receives exactly the right level of instruction. As campers gain confidence and skills, opportunities to advance to the next level are offered. Lessons are taught by certified counselors and staff. All children are supervised by certified lifeguards trained by Ellis & Associates, a private lifeguard training company. Campers need to pack a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen daily.
Sailing & Canoeing
For our campers ages 8 – 10 years, the Day Camp offers instruction in sailing and canoeing. The fleet of boats consists of Sunfish and Barnett sailboats as well as canoes. Campers learn basic boating and seamanship before taking to the water. With a three camper to one instructor ratio, campers learn to sail/canoe in an individualize setting. As campers gain confidence and skill, they will advance through the levels in our program. Patrol boats operated by our staff take special precautions to ensure safety. In addition to bringing a swimsuit, campers will also need to wear suitable footwear for the water. Old tied-on sneakers work best.
