Fun and a love of learning never go on vacation!

Creating, adventuring, playing, computing, collaborating, running, dancing, performing, reading, cooking, calculating, cooperating.

Summer Lab has it all.

Our people, our location, our programs, and our values make Lab the place to be during summer.

Summer Lab’s expansive offerings build on almost 70 years of experience creating outstanding summer activities at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. Summer is our time to extend the Schools’ mission in new ways, inviting not just Lab students but young people from around the neighborhood and around the world to join us. With outstanding counselors and teachers, Lab is also fortunate to have remarkable resources that we make the most of for our summer campers—Earl Shapiro Hall, for grades N–2, and the Historic Campus, for grades 3–12. And we are also able to draw on the unmatched resources of the University of Chicago.

Our summer campers make new friends, share adventures, have a great time, and make the most of summer. Join us!
