For you, it’s about keeping your child active, healthy and happy. For them, it means no school, lots of fun and sports. Our vision is to help the next generation develop a passion for sports – one camp, coach, and one child at a time. The Hi-Five Sports Camp experience will be remembered for the high energy-level of our coaches and the positive impact made on the lives of our campers. Hi-Five Sports Camp is a sports camp dedicated to a full menu of team sports designed for children from pre-K to 7th grade. Hi-Five Sports Camp 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.

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 P.E. teachers who promote the fundamentals through personalized instruction and positive reinforcement – all this while always maintaining a sense of humor! And no matter the skill level of the child, the goal remains the same: to have a great time, while learning the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship. All of which results in a positive, self-esteem-building experience. And Hi-Five isn’t new at this. We’ve been serving families since 1991 at our Northfield campus. Along with our Chicago campus, we provide safe, cutting-edge, skill-developing programs.
