Camp curriculums emphasize socialization through child-led play which lays the foundation for learning and academic success. Camp Directors and Counselors are trained to provide a positive camp experience for children of ages 2 to 15. Staff is trained in CPR, AED, First Aid, and Behavior Management. The Bensenville Park District conducts background checks on all staff.

Campers will experience a fun adventurous summer filled with cool crafts, games, new discoveries about their surroundings, fantastic field trips, afternoon swim time, and nature exploration. Adventure Camp emphasizes making new friends, trying new activities and having fun.
Campers connect with the farm animals and the outdoors every day! Making discoveries to see what the past was like through games and hands-on activities are just part of our fun-filled day. A hike through Fischer Woods and a chance to care for the chicken and sheep at Fischer Farm provide great opportunities to discover even more about the nature that surrounds all of us. Field trip visits to exciting places, including some splash time at the Bensenville Water Park & Splash Pad, are set to round out our camp. Drop off and pick up your camper at Fischer Farm. Campers may be enrolled in the Park District’s Before and/or After Camp Care Program where transportation is provided to and/or from the Deer Grove Leisure Center for supervision and more fun.
