All campers must be at least 4 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle a full day program.

Activities

Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KE Camps are exactly alike!  Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”.   The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Wacky Wednesdays

Every Wednesday at camp is a wacky one with a different festive theme – a true highlight of each week! Check out this summer’s Wacky Wednesday Calendar!

Thankful Thursdays

We are excited to announce the return of Thankful Thursdays into our camp program! In true camp spirit, every Thursday campers will have the chance to give back to their community by working together on a simple, fun and rewarding community service project. Check out this summer’s Thankful Thursday Calendar!

Lunch & Snacks

The club will provide a delicious and kid-friendly lunch and snack for every camper each day. 

Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp.   We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts.   Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts.   If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Packing List

KE Camps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Flotation Vest: If you know that your child will be classified as a Bogey (our term for Non-Swimmer) this summer or you prefer your child to be classified this way, please pack a flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.
Golf Clubs (Optional)
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Swimsuit
Tennis Racquet (Optional)
Towel

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Camp Families, 

I am very excited to be working as the camp director at Butterfield Country Club this year. This will be my second year as a director with KE camps but my first year at Butterfield Country Club. During the school year I am a physical education teacher at Oak Park River Forest High school. I have been working with children of all ages in school and after-school sports programs for 15 years. Working with children and keeping them active and engaged is a passion of mine and I look forward to working with the campers to share those experiences. 

Camp is such a great time to meet new friends, try new activities and fill your summer with some extra excitement. One of my favorite aspects of camp is going to the pool. After we have been doing activities in the sun all day, it is such a nice feeling to get to go to the pool and cool off to finish our day. 

In my free time, I enjoy lifting weights, traveling and rooting for the Bulls and White Sox. I am looking forward to camp this summer and I cannot wait to meet all of you! 

See you soon!  

James Pligge
