Camp Hobson invites children to play in nature and discover the great outdoors, including the forest preserve that surrounds Hobson School. Children will imagine and create as they explore unique art materials, construct and build with loose parts, work together, and play games. Children return to our unique camp year after year. They tell us there is no other place like it!

All of our camp staff are teachers with degrees in education and a passion for the outdoors.
