Swimming at overnight youth summer camp in Illinois Counselors make good mentors at Camp Shaw, the best camp in IL Adventure abounds at this overnight youth summer camp in IL

Camp Shaw is an American Camp Association accredited overnight summer camp and rental site located in northeastern Illinois, just an hour south of Chicago. We have 70 years of experience that combines historical camp traditions and new adventures to create the best environment we can for our amazing participants.  While at camp, you will have the opportunity to make new friends, try new things and gain independence.

It is our goal to provide youth with the ability to further develop social skills and learn independence along with being able to proactively problem solve with their peers. Join us this summer as we continue to offer youth fun and safe overnight summer camp experiences.

“We choose this camp because it is where I went as a kid and I loved it. My children have grown to love it as much as I have and cannot wait to get there. The thing that makes it great is that it is a true summer camp. It is all about getting back to nature and getting to spend a week away from your parents and make your own memories and experiences.” -K.W., former camper
