Summer Camp Options & Details
Welcome to Summer Camp 2020
Deerfield Park District camps have been modified due to COVID-19; however, we still have many fun activities planned for all campers. While practicing social distancing and taking necessary precautions, park district staff have worked hard to plan a fun and memorable camp experience, including arts and crafts, games, music, drama, nature and more.
Camps will be offered in small groups of no more than 10 campers and 2 camp counselors. Field trips, bus service and pool visits will not be a part of this year’s camp program. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of all campers and staff as it is hard to social distance and ensure health and safety in these types of environments.
Camp may look and feel different this year, but we believe by working together we have created a positive, safe and healthy experience for everyone.
HIGHER RISK CAMPERS: If your camper has a pre-existing medical condition or is for any reason at a higher risk for complications related to COVID-19, please consult with your child’s healthcare provider and inform the Deerfield Park District as soon as possible so that we can work together to assess risk and come up with and individual plan for your family.
The updated 2020 Day Camp Parent Manual will be available by mid-June and will also be emailed to all registered camp participants.
Due to physical distance guidelines and to ensure the safety and well-being being of campers and staff, bus service will not be offered for the 2020 camp season.
Children must be entering the grade of the camp by 9/1/20.
Camp payment is due in full at the time of registration
Parent manuals will be emailed in mid-June the which will include detailed information about your child’s camp participation, including how to complete your child’s online health history, allergy action plan and buddy request (if allowed).
Resident & 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.
When registering for our Day Camps, use the Park District registration form. When the park district offices are not open, we have a few drop boxes for your convenience inside and outside of the Jewett Park Community Center. You must include total payment with your registration form. Your full payment for all sessions of all camps is due upon registration.
