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 2023 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.
Summer Camp Program Guide
Campers should bring a labeled sack lunch and drink or pre-purchase one from Marla’s Brown Bag Lunch every day of camp. More information on Marla’s Brown Bag Lunch program will be sent out at the beginning of May. Registration for Marla’s Brown Bag Lunch program for interested participants will start at the beginning of June.
Children must be entering the grade of the camp by 9/1/2023.
Fees and Deposits
Resident and non-resident fees are listed for each camp. A $50 or $100 nontransferable, nonrefundable deposit is due at registration. This deposit is applicable to tuition. Camp fees cannot be prorated to accommodate vacations.
Camp Payment Plan
A camp payment plan is again offered for the 2023 camp season. Your camp fees can be paid in four equal monthly payments through an automatic installment billing process. Installment billing must be set up as an automatic charge/debit to a credit card or from a bank account. All ACH and credit card charges are processed on the 15th day of February, March, April, and May. The final payment is due May 15. Please be aware that this is the only payment plan that will be offered for camp fees. If using the Camp Payment Plan, all camp fees must be paid in full by May 15 for participants to attend camp. For more information and/or enrollment forms for this payment option, please contact the registration office at 847-945-0650 by February 3, 2023.

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.
Parent manuals will be emailed mid-April and will include detailed information about your child’s camp participation, how to complete your child’s online health history, allergy action plan and buddy request (if allowed).
Camp Refund Policy
Two weeks prior to the first day of camp, you may receive a refund for camp fees less the $50 or $100 deposit. Within the two weeks prior to the first day of camp, 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 $50 or $100 deposit will be deducted and the refund will be prorated based on when participation ends. If your child is unable to continue in a program because of a medical problem, you must submit a letter from your doctor on his/her 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.
