Time To Register for Evanston Ecology Center Summer Camps
The Evanston Ecology Summer Camps are one of the most popular summer camp options in Evanston.
The camps are located near the Central Street neighborhood area and offer a unique curriculum that combines fun, adventure, and environmental science.
But most of the camps do fill to capacity. So if you are seeking a great summer camp experience for your child, the Ecology Center summer camps are the "Natural Choice" for residents of Evanston and the surrounding communities.
Open registration is now available and fills camp slots on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration can be accomplished online, by phone, in person, or by regular mail.
The camps are designed for grades K – 8 and run from June 17 through Aug, 23. Camp sessions are both two and four weeks in length and are led by Ecology Center staff members with backgrounds in education, natural history and recreation.
