Mission Statement

CAMP 1302’s mission is to provide youth with a 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.


CAMP 1302 summer day camp, which was named for our address, is 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 in 2012, CAMP 1302 has served
more than 500 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 an afternoon snack 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 five to six weeks from July through August. 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, arts and crafts, field trips,
teambuilding and life skills through group play and team sports.

And we have a community garden, called the Soul Garden. It is a space for play, healing and to be one with nature.
