Summer Camp at the deerfield park district

Discover a summer of fun in the sun while making memories of a lifetime at the Deerfield Park District summer day camp program! Games, arts and crafts, music, drama, nature, sports, pool time and more… we offer something for everyone!

During the 2024 season, camp groups will be kept small at 10 campers to 1 staff maximum ratio.  Field trips will once again be offered in many of our day camps as well as daily swimming.

Our dedicated camp staff is very excited to work together and create a positive, safe, and healthy experience for everyone.

Special School District #109 & #113 Rates

Resident rates will apply to those who live within the park district boundaries. If a participant does not live within the park district boundaries but enrolls in a program that is held at a District 109 or 113 school and they reside in that school district, then they pay the resident rate, but cannot begin to register until the non-resident registration date.

Summer camp handbook

Our Camp Handbook provides essential details regarding your child’s camp involvement, including instructions on completing their online health history, allergy action plan, and submitting a buddy request if applicable.

Camp handbooks will be emailed at the end of April to families with children in the following camps; So Big, Sun and Fun, Little Scampers, #1 Camp, Pathfinders, Trailblazers, Explorers, Art Camp, Tennis Camp, and sports camps: Rookies, All-Stars, Superstars, and MVP.

Camp Refund Policy

Prior to June 3, 2024 (two weeks before the 2024 camp season begins), you may receive a refund for camp fees less the deposit for each camp. If your camp did not require a deposit, your cancellation fee is $25 per camp session cancelled. (*For Sarah Hall Summer Performers Camp refunds, please contact Sarah Hall for details.) If refunds are requested between June 3 and June 16, refunds will be granted only if the spot can be filled by another camper, for medical reasons or if you are moving outside of the park district. In these cases, the deposit will be deducted and the refund will be prorated based on when participation ends. No refunds are granted after the camp season begins unless there is a medical issue or the family moves out of the district. If your child is unable to continue in a program because of a medical problem, you must submit a letter from your doctor on their letterhead in order to receive a refund. If you are moving out of the district, in order to obtain a refund, you must submit proof in writing that you are moving. For more information, please call the registration office at 847-945-0650.
