Banner Day Camp

Banner Day Camp

For the past 54 years, Banner Day Camp has been creating exceptional summers by serving as a traditional summer camp offering a wide variety of activities, including sports, arts, adventure and aquatics programs for children ages 3-12 that reside in the North Shore and City of Chicago. When Allen and Helen Schwartz started Banner Day Camp, they dreamt of creating a magical place where children are empowered to grow. Banner Day Camp opened in 1964 as a Saturday camp, and in 1965, began its summer camp program with 100 campers. Today, it has grown into a premier day camp.

At Banner Day Camp, it’s more than just fun – campers also grow as individuals while embracing new opportunities. As campers develop positive self-esteem through achieving new accomplishments, both socially and athletically, they also learn important skills like empathy, collaboration,critical thinking, creativity and resiliency. Inland Bank recently started providing Banner Day Camp with banking services. As a new customer, Banner Day Camp selected to work with Inland Bank because of its low rates.“Our service representative,Melissa Ritchie, has been extremely accessible to answer our questions and even came out to our business to set things up so we did not have to drive to the Bank,” said Stacy Schwartz Kotelov, owner and executive director of Banner Day Camp. “It was a nice personal touch and we greatly appreciated the service-oriented experience.”

Banner Day Camp has the reputation of being the premier camp in the area due to its amazing care offered to campers and families, unsurpassed facilities and phenomenal leadership team and staff. Banner Day Camp is located at 1225 Riverwoods Road in Lake Forest. For more information,visit 

Crosstown Real Estate Advisors, LLC

Small Real Estate Business Grows Footprint Across the Nation

Crosstown Real Estate Advisors, LLC (“CREA”) is a private commercial real estate firm headquartered in Chicago that focuses on acquisitions, property management, land development and leasing. CREA originated in 2011 with one property in the Chicagoland area and has grown to nearly 20 properties in Georgia and Illinois. Co-founders of CREA, Matthew Baumann and Jonathan Janas, obtained their first loan from Inland Bank and Trust

in 2017 to acquire a 43,000-square-foot vacant industrial property located in Des Plaines, Illinois. Within one year, CREA rented the property to an environmental laboratory who eventually purchased the subject property. CREA recently obtained additional financing from Inland Bank and Trust for a retail center in Joliet, Illinois, a retail center in Evergreen Park, Illinois and a 60,000-square-foot office building in Northfield, Illinois. Today, CREA’s portfolio consists of office, retail, industrial, mixed-use, multifamily and development sites.

“Terrence Velan of Inland Bank and Trust believed in our model when we purchased our first, fully vacant industrial property,” said Matthew Baumann. “There are not many local lenders that would have done the same and that was a clear indication to us that we were aligned with a lender that valued our track record and trusted us as sponsors.”

Crosstown Real Estate Advisors, LLC is headquartered at 3543 North Pulaski in Chicago. For more information, visit
