What Age Kids Do We Work With?

Our Arlington Heights and Libertyville No School Day Camps are great for boys and girls ages 6 to 14-years-old. We offer a unique blend of learning and growth combined with adventure and fun. We don't necessarily divide the groups by age, we place children of all ages together in groups, encouraging the older ones to lead.

We believe this nurtures efficient teamwork whereby kids and their peers negotiate their strengths and weaknesses to complete challenges. Hot Ground Gym makes kids work together to overcome their fears and achieve a sense of communal accomplishment. Regardless of age, they’re bound to have a good time while parents relax or at work.

Customer Reviews

I was so excited, when I got an email, about registering Ian for Hot Ground Presidents Day camp. Days off of school, usually mean a full day of TV watching, and junk food at Grandmas, so the option of having him, hang with friends, participate is lots of action packed fun, was an awesome alternative. He LOVED it! He was so excited to tell me all about the knife throwing, and Archery, and the fun team works activities that he did. He was active and busy all day, by the time I picked him up, he was spent! We love Hot Ground, and look forward to enrolling Ian any camps they have in the future!!!

My daughter went to the Arlington Heights HGG school closed day on 9/30/19. This was her 2nd time there. The 1st time was for a birthday party. She LOVED the day!!! She says the Zombie game was her favorite. She was a little nervous when she got there. Sam was so welcoming and sweet to her. She warmed up and absolutely loved her day. We can't wait to sign up as a member.

We were very excited that Hot Ground Gym offered a camp session for Good Friday. It gave our son the opportunity to spend the day learning new skills and being active. We love Hot Ground Gym! We have seen a big change in our son over the course of the last couple of months. All of the instructors are great with him and have taught him so much! He is learning to work with other kids as part of a team, to be a good listener and be respectful.

FAQ About Our No School Day Camps

DO YOU PROVIDE FOOD AT YOUR NO SCHOOL DAY CAMP?

We do not provide food. Instead we facilitate a "picnic" like setting for our campers where they can ear up their snack and/or lunches. We care for safety of our campers a lot and ask that all food being brought in be nut-free.

Can I take my kid to your no-school camp and go and run my errands?

Absolutely, that’s one of the great advantages we offer for parents! Our Full-Day camps run from 9 am-4 pm, while our Half-Day camps are from 9 am-12 pm and 1-4 pm. As a parent, you can choose which schedule suits you best.

Do you go outside during your day camps?

If the weather is good, we'll seize the opportunity for the kids to partake in our specially designed outdoor activities.
