Chicago Lights Summer Day

About Summer Day

Chicago Lights Summer Day is a six-week program that provides a safe place for 100 first through ninth graders to learn and engage in academic classes and arts instruction each summer. At the end of the session, students present a dynamic, multicultural arts performance for the community.

Learning during the Summer

Students primarily from the Near North, Near West, and Austin/Lawndale neighborhoods come to Chicago Lights for classroom instruction in language arts and math in the mornings and workshops in dance, drama, visual art, singing, and digital music production in the afternoons.

Field trips throughout the Chicagoland area and enrichment classes such as mindfulness and meditation practices, outdoor recreation, and yoga are also included in the six-week curriculum.

To request a student application, please contact Mark Dennison.
