Summer Camp Music Festival’s first event in 2001 brought about 1,000 patrons to enjoy over 15 bands on two stages during the 2-day event at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL. Since, Summer Camp has transformed the grounds annually, welcoming in more fans, more fun, and way more music.
Despite the growth, Summer Camp remains the “home away from home” stomping grounds for dedicated SCampers, welcoming in new attendees each year to become a part of our giant, music-loving family. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first year or 20th attending the festival, you’ll enter the grounds for the time of your life and leave with a life-changing experience. As one fan put it, “Coming to Summer Camp is like coming home.”
Almost tripling the population of Chillicothe for the weekend, Summer Camp creates a city within a city and greatly impacts the local business economy.
