Camp Northerly_noDate (4).jpg

Chicago's only adult urban camping experience at beautiful Northerly Island Park

Experience the parks like never before! When you purchase a ticket to Camp Northerly, you're supporting the Chicago Parks Foundation's efforts to bring communities and parks together - it's camping with a purpose! Admission includes access to Goose Island Brewer's Basecamp with unlimited canned favorites and custom drafts, signature swag from our partners, live music under the stars, camp-themed eats from local restaurants, yoga, games, and more!

Camp Northerly 2017 was our best year yet! 150 campers joined us August 11th-12th. With a backdrop of perfect Chicago summer weather, we enjoyed classic camp activities - from glow in the dark kickball and games, to DIY s'mores, to acoustic fireside tunes from local artist Ryley Walker, to good old fashioned hammock relaxing in the park's lush natural areas. The morning wrapped up with sunrise yoga, hot breakfast, and of course Goose Island's "beermosas." It's a special opportunity to be able to camp in the heart of our city - the skyline on one side, the lake on the other, and a bunch of parks supporters in between.
