Our summer camp programming closely aligns with the International Baccalaureate framework in place at our school. Each week of the six-week day camp follows a theme from the IB. Here are the kinds of activities your child will enjoy during Camp GEMS (specific programming for 2019 still being finalized):

Week 1, Who We Are
  • Study, prepare and sample food from different cultures
  • Visit different ethnic/cultural neighborhoods in Chicago
Week 2, Where We Are in Place and Time
  • Explore Chicago musuems (The Field Museum, the Chicago Cultural Center) to get a sense of the city's history
  • Study and create maps that chart journeys throughout the city
Week 3, How We Organize Ourselves
  • What jobs are important to a community? Talk to firefighters, police officers, doctors, etc
  • Attend community festivals, visit civic buildings (fire stations) 
Week 4, How the World Works

  • Visit a zoo and public gardens 
Week 5, Sharing the Planet
