Summer is a time for adventures -
and Camp Naper is the place to have them!
Is your child an explorer, detective, artist or all of the above? Camp Naper has programs that are sure to delight and engage. Our summer day camps put your child right in the center of the action and are supervised by experienced, adult counselors. Best of all — they’ll have so much fun, they won’t even realize how much they’re learning.
