Wow! We did it! This summer was the largest in PALS history and we couldn’t be happier. With five programs and more campers and counselors than ever before, PALS celebrated its 10th anniversary with the most exciting and incredible summer yet. Thank you to all the directors, campers, counselors, volunteers, families, and donors that made this summer possible! Without each and every one of you, we couldn’t be the family that we are proud to be.

Campers and counselors at Camp PALS Chicago spent the morning in the gym playing a competitive game of basketball before heading to the beautiful Lincoln Park Zoo. After walking through the gorgeous park and checking out some awesome animals from all over the world, Camp PALS Chicago headed back to campus for dinner and a show- camper karaoke! Everyone brought the house down in true PALS style with their incredible, passionate performances of everything from Justin Bieber to the Beatles.

Check out the photos from the amazing performances and more here and get ready for a truly excellent video!

Camp PALS Chicago spent a beautiful Tuesday on Lake Michigan, soaking up all the sun, sand, and sailing the Windy City has to offer.
Campers and counselors spent the day splashing in the water, playing in the sand and enjoying both a beach barbecue and each other’s company before heading over to the Chicago Yacht Club for the evening. There Camp PALS Chicago enjoyed a delicious dinner and amazing sail boat cruises around Lake Michigan. There may not be anything that can rival the amazing view of the Chicago skyline participants took in, but the smiles and laughter captured today may be pretty close!


Check out the photos of today’s fun here and keep an eye out for the video.
