Day Camp, Discovery Day Camp, Sports Camp, and Zoo Camp will have a tentative start date of Monday, July 6. All those who registered for a camp that starts in June will be issued a refund that will go back to your original form of payment. You will receive an email confirmation once your refund has been processed. Staff is currently developing social distancing and sanitation guidelines to operate camp safely. These guidelines will be communicated before the start of camp. There will be no field trips or swim days for the 2020 summer camp season. Instead, in-house programming and entertainment will be provided. In addition, group swim lessons are canceled for the Summer 2020 season due to the uncertain COVID-19 safety measures from IDPH (Illinois Department of Public Health). Information may change due to circumstances outside of our control.
Algonquin Lakes and Sleepy Hollow Day Camps
Due to facility availability and social distancing capability, Algonquin Lakes and Sleepy Hollow Day Camps will be moved to the Rakow Center. Current participants will automatically be transferred to Day Camp at the Rakow Center.
Beginning on Friday, May 8, we will only require a $10 fee for each registered section (week) of camp to hold your child’s place. Full payment will need to be made the Monday prior to the camp week start date. Once we know camp is running families will be contacted to accept payment.
- Staff is developing new social distancing and safety procedures. This information will be provided prior to the start of camp. We will share this information via email to registered participants, post to our website, and on social media, once it’s available.
- Due to COVID-19, we have limited the total enrollment number for each section (excluding Zoo Camps). Please know this number may change dependent upon recommendations from the state and CDC.
- Should camps be canceled due to situations out of our control, all participants will receive a full refund. This will include the $10 fee.
- We will not be accepting payment plans until the Park District returns to being fully operational.
Discovery Day Camp
Designed especially for young campers, Discovery Day Camp introduces younger elementary school-aged children to the camp experience. With themed activities tailored to this age group, children will explore, learn, play, and make new friends! Indoor swimming lessons available for an additional fee. Camp meets rain or shine. Campers should bring their own lunch and refillable water bottle each day. In-house programming and entertainment will be included each week.
