    Camp Shaw is an ACA-accredited, overnight non-profit summer camp and rental facility located in northeastern Illinois, just an hour south of Chicago. We have 75 years of experience which combines time-honored camp traditions with new adventures to create the perfect mix of programming for both our campers and rental groups. While at camp, youth will have the opportunity to make new friends, try new things, and gain independence.

    At Camp Shaw, children will further develop valuable social skills when they put technology down and proactively problem solve, play, and bond with their peers. Join us in summer as we continue to offer fun and safe overnight summer camp experiences.

    Additionally, we’re the perfect venue for your beautifully rustic, laid-back event, including corporate retreats or outings, family reunions, sporting events, and more! We’ve hosted band camps, running camps, church groups, youth clubs, and more. Not sure if we’re the right fit? Just ask and we’ll let you know if we can accommodate you!
