Camp of Dreams is looking for enthusiastic, engaging and responsible individuals who can teach and assist in all areas of residential camp life. During our three-week summer camp, we offer a supportive and challenging environment for underserved Chicago youth to have fun and learn in an outdoor setting. Our campers range in age from 9 to 15 and represent schools throughout the area. The camping season includes two weeks of day camping in the city followed by a week of resident camping at the beautiful wooded site in Oregon, IL operated by the Lutheran Outdoors Ministries Center about two hours west of Chicago. Camp activities typically include classes such as: Creative Writing, Dance, Songwriting, Canoeing, Archery, and a Ropes Course Challenge.


Throughout the school year we seek instructors for our after-school and Community Day programs.  If you enjoy working with children between the ages of 6 and 15 and you want to offer them activities in your special area of interest, please contact us at 312-649-5551.  We also hire a few interns during the school year.
