2020 Summer Day Camp Logo

 

The Chicago Park District is committed to providing Chicago’s youth the opportunity to “Play On” this summer through our day camp program.  While the 2020 camps will be different, the focus of offering a safe space for children to be healthy, active, make new friends and create lifelong memories remains the same.  The safety of all campers is a priority.  Camps will run in accordance with state and city guidelines, limiting the number of campers we can safely program for at each park. Due to space limitations, camp will only be available for Chicago residents.  It is our hope that those who need camp the most are able to register.  Please keep this in mind when making your summer plans.

Important Information for Day Camp 2020

  • Smaller group sizes will be implemented in accordance with CDC, IDPH, and CDPH guidelines. Staff to camper ratio will be 1:9. 
  • Camp is offered for Chicago residents only.
  • Registration will be done by age group (ex. 6-7, 8-10, 11-12) to ensure campers are with kids their age.  Children will only be with their group throughout each day of camp.
  • Campers must practice social distancing. 
  • Campers will be required to wear their own face covering/mask during camp.
  • Campers must attend camp in good health. If any symptoms present, the child will be isolated and a parent will be called to take the child home.
  • Campers must bring their own water, drinking fountains will not be available.
  • Field trips will not be offered.
  • Swimming will not be included.

While camp will be different in several ways, many of the fun activities kids are used to experiencing will remain, such as arts & crafts, non-contact sports, wellness and nature-based activities, and in-house special events.  Seeing familiar faces of park staff and other campers is another highlight of the camp experience, for both campers and staff.  That will especially be the case this summer.

Additional Information:
