Expedition Camps

For children ages 10-13 years – Let adventure be your guide in this outdoor skills based camp program.

The Camp for
Adventure Seekers

The North Shore Country Day School offers an exciting way for children ages 10 – 13 to spend their summer. The Expedition Camp programs are North Shore’s answer for people looking for adventure, challenge and freedom to explore and try new things. Whether it be by land or by water, the Expedition Camp offers something for everyone. The ultimate goal of these two-week sessions is not to see how far one travels, but rather to increase the camper’s knowledge and self-esteem, to create memories and to create a desire to seek out nature.

Campers ages 10-13 enrolled in the Mariner Programs will spend their two weeks learning how to navigate and operate a boat. Campers will learn to sail, canoe, kayak and paddleboard while learning about boating safety. With a low camper-to-staff ratio, campers learn skills which will lead them to a positive, safe boating experience.

Campers do no need any equipment for this program. Campers in the Mariner Program will need to bring a lunch, drink, snack, swimsuit, towel, sunscreen and shoes that can be worn in the water.

Campers should report to North Shore Country Day campus each day. Then camp group will travel to Lloyd Beach in Winnetka for a day of programming and return back to campus for end of day closing activities that may include swimming and other team building tasks.
