La Dee Da is a specialty arts day camp. Our summer curriculum offers 17 specialty themes that have been carefully chosen to suit the interests of young children ages 3 – 10 years old. We pride ourselves on creating a nurturing camp community with attention to each individual while engaging in a group dynamic. Through a variety of fine and creative artsyoga & movement, STEAM projects and select specialty guests, we have created a safe and welcoming space for each camper to expand and explore their unique creativity. Our staff is compiled of real artists, early childhood educators, students pursuing art degrees and other individuals that share a love of the arts and enjoy working with children.

We combine art with fun and plenty of play time. Students work on multiple projects during the week, some of which are progressive in nature. For this reason, we encourage campers to attend a full week of camp so that they can get the most out of our program. Our curriculum has been designed to be an adjunct filler to traditional day camps that you might be planning to send your child to this summer. Sign up for one or multiple weeks!

Due to the specialty nature of our camps, tuition varies based on the specialty being offered, cost of supplies and other activities planned. *Highlighted weeks are considered PREMIUM (P) weeks and have a slightly higher weekly tuition rate. We are offering 4 additional camps this June at Lake Forest Elementary School (LFES). These camps are intended for children ages 7 and up! Week 2 and Week 7 are short weeks. Registration fee waived when you sign-up for two or more weeks!
