About Camp 1302


Camp 1302 - A Summer Day Camp in the Heart of Chicago!

Camp 1302, named for its address, is a summer day camp that was founded in 2012 as an outreach of the Rose of Light M. B. C. (ROL). Located in Chicago's Englewood community Camp 1302 has become a vital
resource to the families in the neighborhood.
Since its founding, Camp 1302 has served more than 450 Campers. We provide a safe environment for children during out-of-school times. We begin each day at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Daily, we serve the campers breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks at no additional cost to their families. To ensure we are meeting the needs of families throughout the summer months, our program is in session for six weeks.
Each day each camper will be sure to have the best day camp experience of their life through activities that provide campers with academic
enhancement and creativity through reading, visual, and performing arts, including martial arts, field trips, team building, and life skills through group play and sports and recreation
including archery.


To provide campers with the best summer camp experience of their lives.


To provide youth with space during the summer that offers enrichment activities in an environment that is safe, fun, and educational while preventing summer learning loss and closing the academic and opportunity gaps.
