Hello All,
I am in search of an overnight summer camp( 1 week or 2) for my 11 year old daughter for the summer. We live in Chicago and as a result she is completely out of touch with nature. I am hoping to find a camp that will help her to appreciate nature by requiring that she get her hands dirty while having fun in the great outdoors! A relatively diverse camp would be ideal but is not a requirement.My daughter is African American so some diversity would be appreciated. We are willing to drive no more than 3 hours from Chicago.
Any suggestions?

You can't go wrong with Spring Hill Camps in Evart. They have age appropriate areas for different levels. And their housing options are whimsical to say the last. They are a non-denominational Christian camp, so make sure you are Ok with that. SpringHill Camps Act quickly though. They fill up. They have a location in Indiana too.
