Two-Week Options: Some day camps offer two week options. Please note, two week sessions do not include busing. Please check each camp individually to see if this the right option for your family.

Camp Swim Tests
To keep up with industry standards and safety procedures the Park District will have each camper perform a swim test. This assessment will be a basic swim test to ensure the swimming ability of each camper. Parents are encouraged to attend one of the swim test dates to get their child tested before the first day of camp. Campers who do not attend the swim test days will be tested on their first camp pool day.


Extended Day Camp

The District offers a safe place for your camper to stay before and after the normal camp day hours. Click here to learn more.
