The Camp @ Cleveland Park Club returns for its fifth summer in 2018.  Weekly sessions are available from June 18 to August 10. 

The Camp @ Cleveland Park Club offers a low-key, warm, and welcoming setting for campers, CIT's and counselors. This summer program combines old-fashioned, self-directed play with organized, hands-on activities.  

Campers, CIT's and counselors expand their horizons, make lasting friendships, and have fun in an atmosphere reminiscent of the days when neighborhood children of all ages spontaneously gathered for outdoor fun.

The camp is intentionally small, with a maximum of 40 campers, CIT's and counselors per week.  Almost all activities take place outdoors. The Club has an expansive porch, sandbox, two-level fort and grassy lawn. 

Fun and educational projects vary with each week's theme. Campers may enjoy daily free swim in the Club's pool and/or participate in swim instruction. Formal swim instruction requires a separate registration and additional fee/s.

New this year:  
Optional aftercare -- 
Campers and CITs can choose to participate in aftercare.  Aftercare will run until 5:30 pm and costs $115/week.
