Summer Camp



Located on the impressive and expansive athletic campus of Woodlands Academy in Lake Forest, campers of all athletic abilities are treated to a multi-sport experience with all but horseback riding activities on site.


Game On! has spent years devoted to inspiring GIRLS through its proven teaching methodology, fun programming and spirited traditions. Name a sport – we play it with the added benefit of playing multiple sports daily. We know that learning the right way and understanding the sport leads to increased confidence and the ability to enjoy.


Aside from our core sports that include basketball, softball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, lacrosse and swimming, we offer exposure to and the opportunity to learn in more sports and games than you can imagine.


Read more about this special program for our youngest campers here. Half day program available for girls 4-5 years old.

Bus transportation is available for all Lake Forest campers and is included as part of tuition. All transportation for 2019 will be cluster busing.


Campers can bring their own lunches and snacks. They can also sign up for our catered lunch program (additional fees apply). View the 2019 menu here. Lunches are not able to be refrigerated. All food must be nut-free. Game On! is a completely nut-free environment (this includes peanut butter and nutella, sorry).

Game On! will be offering transportation from central pick up locations around the North Shore at no extra charge (View the routes here).  The buses will be stationed at designated cluster stops for an extended period of time (at least 10 minutes) so that parents have the option of dropping and picking up their campers at a time along the spectrum that is convenient. All buses will have Game On! coaches on board.

Half Day Campers: While half day campers are not typically eligible for bus transportation, contact us if you may be in need of morning busing.

Lake Forest camp Director Jen is back for summer #2 and we are psyched! A school social worker and youth ice hockey coach during the year, Jen brings a wealth of valuable knowledge and experience to Game On!. Fun Facts: Jen played ice hockey for Lake Forest College AND she owns a dragon! (You’ll have to ask her about that one!) Her favorite motivational quote: “Let your light shine!” No doubt Jen’s light is always shining and, like last summer at Game On!, she will bring out the brightest lights in us all.
