While the Logan Center does not run any summer camps for youth, it does act as a host for many exciting arts focused summer camps from organizations throughout the Chicagoland area. See below for descriptions and how to apply.
Lookingglass Summer Camp on the Lake
July 8 - August 2, 2019
Monday - Friday
Lookingglass celebrates five years of partnership with the Logan Center this summer! Our four-week summer camp program for students entering 3rd-8thgrade (fall 2019) will meet July 8-August 2. Our campers spend their days exploring acting, music, visual art, and dance, as they create an original performance. Each summer we explore stories from a different culture, from Mexico to Australia to Canada and beyond! On Fridays we host a hot-dog barbeque before heading to swim at 63rd Street Beach in the afternoon. Our final camp performance takes place on the stage at Lookingglass Theatre downtown.

Think It Make It Screen It

A 5-day film intensive for youth ages 12 and up. This five-day intensive for beginning to intermediate students who have some experience with digital filmmaking aims to strengthen knowledge of the basics of videography, lighting, sound recording and editing, and allow students to focus on more advanced techniques. Working through their observations, interests, and stories, students will develop their own personal filmmaking style. The course also emphasizes filmmaking as a cooperative medium, only possible through collaborative work. The course culminates in a public screening.
