CHICAGO- When school is out, the parks are in! The Chicago Park District invites families with children ages 6 to 13 to participate in Winter Break Camps from December 26, 2023, through January 5, 2024.

“We’re delighted to be the place where kids and families come to lift their spirits when the days get shorter and colder,” said General Superintendent and CEO Rosa Escareño. “Fun Winter Break Camps ensure Chicago kids are remaining active and social in a time of year where neither school, nor the weather are conducive to activity.” 

Please be advised, the Chicago Park District locations will be closed on December 25, 2023 and January 1, 2024 in observance of Christmas Day and New Years Eve, respectively.
