Camp Lost Garden - Summer Camp

$350
Calendar Jun 27, 2024

Ready to be a kid again?! Camp Lost Garden might just be the place for you! Disconnect for a weekend and take time for good old-fashioned fun, relaxation, and adventure!

Campers will enjoy classic camp activities like arts and crafts, group games/races, campfires (with stories and s’mores!), nature hikes, and more! In some cases, these kid-inspired activities come with an adult twist (e.g., bloody mary bar, cocktail crafting workshop, “boots and brews” hike, etc.)

Grab your gear and get ready for a packed weekend of fun! Whether you are an organization looking to boost team morale, a group of friends who want a good time, or an individual interested in meeting new people while finding time for self-reflection, there is something for all to enjoy!

We wouldn’t be a real summer camp without some ground rules! Be sure to check them out here.

PRE-REGISTRATION will be open February 1 - March 15. Campers are able to secure their spot with a non-refundable deposit of $175 during this time. The remaining balance will be due one month prior to camp arrival. After March 15, camp fees will be due in full at the time of registration.

$350/camper. All sales are final.
Registration includes all activities, meals, snacks, and drinks.

Overnight accommodations must be purchased separately:

— Hotel rooms are available at a discounted rate of $80/night + tax. Please call us at 217-333-3287 to make your reservation.

— Tent camping is available on the Bowling Lawn adjacent to the Mansion. Communal showers will be available on the third floor of the Mansion. You can sign up for a primitive tent camping spot ($50) as an add-on when registering for camp.

If you will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate, please email jmgiffor@illinois.edu.
