For you, it’s about keeping your child active, healthy and happy. For them, it means no school, lots of fun and sports all summer long. And that’s exactly what we’re all about at Hi-Five Sports Camp Chicago offering a full menu of team sports designed for boys and girls from Pre-K (4 years old) to 9th grade. Hi-Five Sports Camp Chicago is about so much more than winning and losing – it is about teamwork, playing hard and playing fair. And it is about making new buddies and enjoying the camaraderie. A camp that is as encouraging as it is challenging. As safe as it is high-energy. And as instructional as it is fun.

Hi-Five Sports Camp Chicago 2023 is back for another amazing summer! This year’s camp will be 8 straight weeks from Tuesday, June 20th through Friday, August 12th (No camp on Monday, June 19th or Tuesday, July 4th).

We’re Sports Nuts, AND Qualified Ones At That!

Just like our campers, we eat, sleep and breathe sports. Our staff is filled with professional coaches, high school and college athletes, as well as experienced physical education teachers who promote the fundamentals through personalized instruction and positive reinforcement – all this while always maintaining a sense of humor and fun!

No matter the skill level of the child, the goal remains the same: to have fun, while learning the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship. All of which results in a positive, self-esteem building experience.

And we’re not new at this. Hi-Five Sports Club has been serving families since 1992 at both our Northfield and Chicago campuses, providing safe, cutting-edge, skill-developing programs, such as Hi-Five Hoops Basketball Program and Hi-Five Lil’ Kickers Soccer Program.


Hope Academy Field and Student Athletic Center is a private facility, currently the home of the Chicago Hope Academy Eagles and Hi-Five Sports Camp’s home since Summer 2020. The Student Athletic Center is a state-of-the-art facility and we trust in the quality and security of the space. We will have exclusive access to the building and grounds every day. It has fully-gated two large outdoor fields, bathrooms, a 400-meter track, plenty of shade and four full-sized indoor basketball courts…talk about a Hi-Five camper’s dream!

What is the staff-to-child ratio?

5-6 campers: 1 staff member

When are camp fees due?

May 1st all camp fees are due. You always have the option to pay-in-full too.

What happens if my child sustains an injury at camp?

If an injury occurs, campers will be brought to our on-staff certified athletic trainer. If not too serious, once the injury is dealt with, the trainer will call the parents to notify them of the injury. If serious, Hi-Five will call 911.

Is Hi-Five only about sports and competition?

Heck no! We provide a safe, encouraging and fun environment in which children can experience sports. We strive to make Hi-Five an experience filled with high-energy and positivity. We believe athletics builds confidence and ultimately provides a focus that is important all through life. In addition to sports, we have talent shows, Halloween in July, and all sorts of fun, engaging activities for your camper to enjoy.

Where and when does my child get picked up and dropped off from the bus?

Once you have signed up for Hi-Five Chicago’s bus service, you will be provided with a drop off and pickup cluster stop.

Is there an After Camp Program?

Yes, the After Camp program operates from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm.

Will there be field trips?

In a typical year, yes. We go to water parks, trampoline parks, baseball games, bowling alleys, etc. Last summer, we were able to go on most of our favorite field trips. However, we will have to wait and see what the status of the pandemic is by the time camp rolls around. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will be able to bring the kids to our favorite field trip spots. If we are not able to, we are already planning on how to bring the field trip experience right to camp.

Is there a lunch program available?

The Hi-Five Hot Lunch Program offers campers individual meals catered by Chicago’s favorites like Fontano’s Subs, Popeye’s, Taco Bell, Buona Beef, and Lou Malnati’s. And every week ends with the famous Hi-Five Friday cookout. In addition, we offer a healthy and balanced menu of basics like WOW Butter (contains no peanuts) and jelly, bagels and cream cheese, plus fresh fruits every single day. So in addition to the catered meal, there are also many other healthy options to choose from. Of course, campers are welcome to bring their own lunches any time; refrigeration is available.

Can you customize your weeks?

Yes, you can. You can choose to go any combination of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 weeks.

What do the campers do during inclement weather?

We have great indoor facilities including an air-conditioned cafeteria, classrooms, gymnasiums and a theater! These great facilities allow us to continue the majority of our daily activities even in the event of rain or extreme heat. We may plan some off-camp activities in the event of rain as well.

What if my child has allergies or necessary medication?

Campers taking medication must have a signed medical authorization form. Please send the medication with your child on the first day of camp. Our on-staff Certified Athletic Trainer will keep it for the summer and administer it per your authorization. Please CLEARLY LABEL all medication.
