Check Out Local Parks and Nature Reserves

The best part about visiting local parts is that even the youngest campers can enjoy the wonders of nature. For your summer camp trips, consider visiting a local park, nature reserve, or zoo. These field trips can help kids observe various plants, animals, and nature, which helps enrich their curiosity about the world around them. Consider creating a scavenger hunt or a guided nature walk through Lincoln Park Zoo or Brookfield Zoo! Both of these zoos are popular in Chicago for a reason. There is a lot to see in nature. The Brookfield Zoo has a lot of interactive activities, such as the beautiful butterfly exhibit, motor safari, and hands-on goat feeding experience. 

Explore Our Many Chicago Museums

If you looking for field trips for summer camps, Consider visiting the museum, science center, historical site, or farm. These trips can help provide an opportunity for kids to expand their knowledge and appreciation for art. At some art centers, you can engage in hands-on learning. Whether looking at an actual dinosaur exhibition at the Field Museum, or experiencing a Monet in person at the Art Institute, these field trips can be educational and fun.  Many teachable moments can come from a historical standpoint as well. Being exposed to a museum environment can help them gain a deeper understanding of past life and history. 

Appreciate Science

We also have the Adler Planetarium, which is in the same plaza as the Field Museum. The Adler Planetarium hosts many shows that showcase the night sky, wowing the viewers with unique visualizations, while also being highly educational. A lot of kids are curious about the universe and space. Staring up at different planets and constellations can be more significant than life experience. The Shedd Aquarium is another suburb option. They have many events for kids of all ages. These events include Penguin Encounter, Sea Otter Encounter, Beluga Encounter, and several must-see tours! If you want to look at aquatic life and have a blast along the way, check out the Shedd Aquarium.

Educate Kids With Plays 

Another exciting and educational option for summer camp trips would be to educate kids with a visit to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Shakespeare is not always easy for kids to understand, but seeing a play can be very entertaining for students to experience. The Shakespeare Theater is currently playing Beauty and the Beast, starting on July 14th! The theater is an excellent place for kids since it is always a remarkable experience for field trips for summer camps. Getting to see a play put on by professionals! With the acting, props, and set, students will be blown away by your field trip ideas for summer camps. A visit to a play might even inspire kids to get into theater!
