Source 4 Chicago is a partnership formed in the spring of 2012 by Design Dance, Dream Big Performing Arts Workshop and Little Linguists Academy. Together, we collectively offer full day workshops and camps for students who enjoy a variety of programming throughout the day that includes a rotation of dance, drama and foreign language classes. In addition, Source 4 partners with numerous other top-rated children's programs in the city, including We Got Game, Mad Science, Lill Street ArtReach, Connelly's Academy and many others, making us a one-stop shop for families who want to find the best and most diverse enrichment that Chicago has to offer.
Potential Strike Camp
As you may have heard, a CTU strike has been set for October 11th, if an agreement is not reached before then.
Our partnership at Source 4 is prepared to provide full day, week-long programming in case of a potential CPS Teacher Strike. Dream Big, Design Dance and Little Linguists Academy are partnering with a variety of programs including Lill Street Art Reach, We Got Game and more to ensure students have a well-rounded and educational experience even when they're not in school. We are keeping our ear close to the ground so that you can rely on us for safe coverage and enriching programming for your child that is educational, affordable, and fun in a nurturing environment, no matter what the circumstances may be. Space is limited to 135 students in Andersonville. In 2012, parents were thrilled with the level of organization, quality of skilled programming and service they received. (See testimonials below)

Kind Words of Gratitude Poured in After our 2012 Strike Camp...
Thank you thank you thank you to all four of your organizations for pulling together such a wonderful program on such short notice! You made this past week so smooth that it barely even felt like we were inconvenienced by the strike at all (which was hardly the case for most of the city). Kai loved all of the programming and the teachers and talked our ears off about everything she did all day. While we know its time to get back to school, we'll all miss 'strike camp'!
Thank you, Lisa, for everything you did to provide a safe, fun and nurturing environment for our kids during these past two weeks. You and your team were truly lifesavers! :)
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all. You did such a great job organizing and running this program. You took such a big worry off our minds by providing a safe, educational, fun camp. I know my son had a great time and he made some new friends.
I hope if you don't already have plans in place to offer something similar for a summer camp that you will consider it. I know we would be interested. Regardless, I will be recommending you to everyone I know.
Thanks again and we hope to see you in the near future!
Thank you for organizing this much needed event and pulling it all together when we really needed it.
Appreciated more than you know.
Thanks so much Lisa it was a life saver.
Thank you so much for providing a wonderful camp!
Thanks for providing camp. We really appreciate it.
Thank you for providing a wonderful alternative over the past ten days! Well done and much appreciated.
Lisa- thanks to you and the whole team! Truly our experience with Strike Camp was the best part of this last week and a half. We look forward to utilizing your services in the future, under more civilized circumstances:)
I must take a moment to thank you and the Source 4 Chicago staff for providing such a wonderful program over the the last week & a half! Your Strike Camp was the sole bright spot during the teachers' walkout. Sasha had a wonderful time and my husband and I felt good about having her days filled with all of the S4C activities rather than just babysitting.
Please keep me on your email list, and hopefully next time we see you all will be for a Summer camp rather than a strike camp!
Thanks so much for providing care during the strike. Having your organization's options available really eased my mind during these past days.
Thanks for your help in this challenging time. We appreciate it!
*In the event that the Strike does not occur, your full registration fee will be refunded.
