The No. 1 Children's Summer Camp in Chicago

The area’s only family-owned and operated for 30 years

Fred’s Camp has been a summertime tradition in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood since 1994. The camp was founded by a former educator, Fred Greenburg, whose lifelong dream was to create an urban summer day camp, with an overnight camp philosophy, reminiscent of his own childhood. Today, his children and several former campers carry on the tradition of a broad and flexible summertime kids’ program that encourages young campers to participate and challenge themselves. Fred’s Camp activities are designed by experienced educators and meant to develop physical coordination, self-awareness, teamwork, self-esteem and sensitivity to their environment…..SAFE & FUN!
