What sets us apart from other camps in the C-U Area? We are the only camp program built around unparalleled swim instruction! One way we assure developmentally appropriate practices is to hire area schoolteachers to fill the roles as team leaders in our program. Several intended practices set our camp apart from other programs in the community, including standard of ratios for campers to counselors. DCFS requires a 10:1 ratio for 3- and 4-year-olds and 15:1 for school age children. At Indian Acres our ratios are 4:1 for 3-and 4-year-olds; 5:1 for our 5- and 6-year-olds; and our 7-13-year-old camper ratios are no more than 8:1. We plan our themes based on our campers’ interests and incorporate guest speakers to enhance our day campers’ learning experiences. Our activities vary each week dependent on our themes and our day campers always receive a daily swim lesson, recreational swim and a theme based craft as part of their morning routine.
Indian Acres Day Camp has been in existence since the 1940s, and even though times change our values and traditions at camp remain the same!
