Camp Shaw-was-nas-see (Camp Shaw) is an American Camp Association 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.
This year has been challenging for summer camps across the country. Camp Shaw has been no different. Due to the global pandemic, 2020 summer camp and the rental group season was cancelled. In addition, our annual fundraiser also had to be cancelled. As a result, Camp Shaw has experienced a significant financial shortfall in 2020.
We know Camp Shaw can emerge from the pandemic stronger than before with your help and financial support. Camp Shaw staff and volunteers continue to work towards brighter days ahead, and hopefully an exciting and vibrant 2021 camp season! Your generous contributions will go to a variety of needs, including building and grounds maintenance, program equipment, staffing costs, and camp scholarships for the upcoming year. We also want to be able to continue to host rental groups such as Shoe Fest, Live-Action Role-Play groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Ultimate Chicago, band camps, Girls in the Game, weddings and other special groups.
Together we can do this! Please make a donation to help Camp Shaw continue to enrich the youth of Northern Illinois with camping and outdoor education programs for the upcoming 2021 season - we can all be a part of the Brighter Days Ahead!
