Summer Camp, June 29 - August 7, 2020
Our campers are between the ages of 8 and 15. Day camping begins on June 29 after school dismisses for the summer. Day camp lasts for five weeks and meets at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Center (AMCC) at 4421 S. State St. Overnight camp (July 19-25) highlights the summer in Oregon, IL at the site of the Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center. Since 2003 our Dreamers have had opportunities to swim, fish, canoe, sleep in a tent, cook over a camp fire and enjoy the comaraderie and relationships that occur naturally in a camp environment. We accept inquiries about camp at any time by contacting Executive Director Antoinette Wright at (312) 649-5551.
