Kids Day Out is the summer 2021 camp opportunity hosted by Harvest Kids.
You may be looking for the beloved High Five option this summer. We intend on bringing back High Five for the summer of 2022. This year, we invite you to try something different … we invite you to get your child out of the house and parents get a day out doing whatever makes parents happy.

What will my child do at Kids Day Out?
Kids Day Out is a combination of a traditional camp and a summer faith-based camp experience. There will be indoor and outdoor activities including physical activities, competitions, crafts, and skilled-based activities. We will also use our camp time to teach leadership and virtue-driven choices based on biblical values. We believe children in Chicagoland can make a difference for good in our communities when they live outside of themselves through kindness, generosity, and serving something bigger than themselves.
Who is Kids Day Out created for?
Kids Day Out is created for children of Chicagoland. We invite all children who are entering Kindergarten through Grade 5 to join us at Kids Day Out. Everyone is welcome.

What precautions are you taking for Covid?
LIMITED CAPACITY and SMALLER GROUP SIZES
We are currently limiting our overall registration capacity for Kids Day Out to 20-25% of our normal level for summer day camp. We are placing children in ShOUT Team of ten or less including staff. The only exception we will make is an emergency situation. We will honor friend requests.
INCREASED SANITATION and HEALTH PRACTICES
Updated June 3: As our state is changing and opening, we will change along with them. We do our best to follow all the policies and guidelines placed on us without policing children creating a punitive environment. If our staff is required to wear masks, we will. If we are not required, we will leave each person to their own choice. Our camp is created for the outdoors, in groups ten or less, socially distanced and with limited touch surfaces.
If you are 100% masked, 100% of the time, then you may wish to reconsider.
