We have three campsites available to nationally recognized youth groups. Cantigny's campgrounds are available to nationally recognized youth groups only – BSA, GSA, AWANA, YMCA Adventure Guides, etc. There is no fee to use the sites, but we do require a reservation. To learn more, visit our Group Visits page or call our registrar to book today.
Camp Site 1 is located closest to the Education Center and restroom/shower facilities. Located next to Camp Site 1, Camp Site 2 offers easy access to our hiking trail and is across from the prairie and Reflection Point. Camp Site 3 is our largest site and more secluded from the other sites – adjacent to the south side of the prairie and closest to the Idea Garden.
All of Cantigny’s campgrounds offer established fire pits, firewood, picnic tables and trash collection.
