Note: Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, Woodlawn has determined that we will not offer summer camp this 2020 season. Please know that the Cemetery grounds are open for walking each day between 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. and we hope you will continue to enjoy our grounds.
Woodlawn offers summer educational camps for children. Learning at Woodlawn is fun and connects students with the past in an unforgettable way. For students grades 1-7, Camp Woodlawn is a four-week summer camp experience. Camp activities will include plenty of outdoor time, scavenger hunts, map reading activities, arts and crafts, reading workshops, tree identification walks, and more! Campers may attend multiple sessions.
Your child will make music and art, learn about the natural world, and explore the history of our great neighborhood and city — in a small-group setting and with experienced and caring instructors, students learn the incredible and inspiring stories of some of Woodlawn’s notables such as the musicians in our famous Jazz Corner, explorers, entrepreneurs and more.
Campers will learn about notables like Nellie Bly, the journalist known for her record breaking round the world trip in 72 days in 1889, learn how to identify tree types from Woodlawn Arboretum’s collection, and be inspired by Woodlawn’s art and architecture in regular craft activities. And it all takes place on our beautiful 400-acre campus, just a short walk from most of Woodlawn Heights.
Camp Woodlawn brings alive the history of our great neighborhood and city, celebrates the lives and achievements of those who came before us and sparks curiosity and passion in the leaders of tomorrow.
