Camp & Preschool Prep – Evanston

Little Beans SUMMER Camp 2020 (3-9 years): July 6th – August 28th


Little Beans offers a fun-filled camp for kids 3-9 years. Each week brings a new theme and unique fun. The week’s theme is included in the week’s activities and classes. Imaginative play, active play, sports, art, a daily class, a healthy snack, and outdoor games included every day. Lunch can be brought from home or purchased for $5.

Camp at Little Beans is going to look a little different this year. We will not be open to the public this summer and will only be hosting Summer Camp for 2 groups of 15 kids. The kids registered will have the entire space locked to themselves! We will spend time outside at the Chute fields.

Commitment is required for 2 weeks or more to limit the number of new kids starting and to allow relationships with the kids to form. Kids will be required to have a temperature check each morning.


3-9 years – Ages are divided into 2 groups of 10 kids. 3-5 years and 6-9 years.
