Upon registration, you will pay a non-refundable deposit of $25 to hold your child's spot. Camp fees will be due April 20th. Credit from camp that was canceled in 2020 may be used toward the payment due in April. Deposits must be paid separately. The deposit holds your child's enrollment and is in addition to camp fees. This deposit will be used entirely to support our COVID cleaning and additional safety procedures including additional staff.

We are currently full and are maintaining a waitlist.

Extended Day

There will be no extended day options this summer. Many Group Leaders and AAs enjoy babysitting before and after camp. A list of interested teens and young adults will be available by request before camp begins.



Camp will be located at Northminster, 2515 Central Park in Evanston. Session 4 may also be located at Willard Elementary School, 2600 Hurd in Evanston.

Other Information

Age Requirements

2nd - 6th grades

Camp DIY is open to kids entering 2nd - 6th grades (previously 2nd-5th grades). We accept all kids within the registration time frame, until full. Our hope is that every camper gets the full benefit of attending our camp, so we will divide kids into groups by age. Friendship requests are accepted during registration.

7th - 9th grades

Middle-schoolers can be an Artist Assistant and that information will be available in March when we know what camp capacity will be allowed by the state and other local authorities. More information is here.

Wait List

Registration is first-come, first-served and we will stop accepting registrations when we are full. If we become full, you may add your child to the wait list at no cost and will be notified as soon as an opening becomes available.

Withdrawals and Cancellations

After April 1st, if your registration is complete and fees have been paid, but camp is no longer in your summer plans, you may withdraw your child at any time for a refund less $75.  If camp is canceled due to state restrictions, all payments will be refunded less the

$25 deposit.
