Give your kids a summer of adventure to remember! At Pilgrim Quest Summer Camp, each day is thoughtfully designed to strike a balance between organized activities and free-spirited exploration with art projects, sports, STEM activities, and engaging group games that cater to diverse interests.

As part of our specially-curated “theme weeks,” we plan field trips to captivating Chicago destinations like Lincoln Park Zoo, Maggie Daley Park, and the Field Museum. We also invite occasional on-site guests - such as magicians and animal experts - who bring unique skills and experiences. This approach guarantees that every camper remains far from the clutches of boredom all summer long!

Pilgrim Quest is based at Pilgrim Lutheran Church and School in North Center. This safe and welcoming environment - on a quiet residential street - includes a large all-purpose room and a secure outdoor play lot with basketball hoops and a climbing wall. 

The eight-week camp begins the week of June 10th, and is open to all children who have completed at least one year of PreK (and who will be four by the time camp begins) through Fifth Grade. 

Each day's programming runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. We also offer After Care from 3-5:30 p.m.

Families may sign-up for the weeks that best fit their summer schedules. Register for all eight weeks, and receive one week's tuition FREE! There is no camp the week of July 4th, and all campers are invited to take part in Pilgrim Vacation Bible School during the week of June 24th at a significantly-reduced rate. 

Enrolling your child in Pilgrim Quest will not only give them a fun-filled summer full of discovery, but will also help them to grow in confidence, step outside their comfort zones, and develop new friendships. Our amazing camp director Kelly Keil is back with us again this summer, along with a team of counselors who are committed to creating a nurturing environment, where every child can thrive!

Business Review

“I couldn't stop raving about how amazing this camp is! There are so many planned activities for the kids, and it was one of the more affordable options for camps in the area." 

"I think it's far more enriching than Chicago Park District options, and more affordable than other specialty camps." 

“It was reasonably-priced with great activities and field trips, as well as a ton of scheduling flexibility! Plus, it's at Pilgrim - a place my child is familiar with, and feels safe and comfortable."  

"Camp Director Kelly and the counselors were attentive, caring, and so much fun!"
