Roycemore Summer Camps

2022 Information Coming Soon!

Ages 4-10 • In-person

The Inspiration Factory is a truly magical place. Here, enrichment for Early Childhood and Elementary School students is built around out-of-this-world topics like Elephant & Piggie, LEGO Robotics, Orienteering, Science & Art Exploration, and Water Works! With individualized attention, camps are led by Roycemore’s expert faculty in spacious, well-equipped classrooms. The Inspiration Factory will enable our youngest students to enjoy a summer of fun with outstanding facilities at safe social distances.   



Ages 3-12 • In-person

Established in 1975, Camp Griffin offers fun and exciting in-person activities! Campers are led by our experienced and inspirational staff. Activities include cooking, creative arts, dancing, drama, egg-drop experiments, human chess, music, shaving cream art, soap slip-n-slide, and a range of field trips designed to make the most of our unique surroundings in Evanston and Chicago. We are committed to providing a fun and enriching camp experience that builds friendships and lasting memories!

Ages 12-18 • In-person & Virtual

Xplore the city of Chicago and the world with our newly designed academic courses for Middle School and High School students. Curiosity and exploration drive the philosophy of discovering new ways to connect authentically with the local and global community. Students will break down the walls between the classroom and the world through hands-on learning and gain real life experiences that can serve as tools in the future. Join us as we reimagine the academic learning experience!

Health and Safety Plan

Nothing is more important at Roycemore than the safety and well-being of our students and staff, and of our wider community. Thanks to the diligent work of our Board of Trustees and our Health and Safety Task Force, we developed a plan to host this year’s summer camps which follows stringent health and safety guidelines. Our safety procedures include: temperature checks, deep cleaning, social distancing, and PPE, along with a daily screener. Our Health and Safety Task Force includes Dr. Mahalakshmi K. Halasyamani, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at NorthShore University Health System; and Dr. Anita Shah, DO, FCCP.

I am so happy to see how wonderful my son’s time at camp was this summer! Thank you for all of your care to help my son be the amazing, curious, and empathetic individual he has become!
