Summer Fun 2020

Summer Camps are now Summer Fun 2020 (K-6th grade)!

We know that many families look forward to camp during the summer – and so do we! This year, due to COVID-19 and the extensive requirements set by the Restore Illinois Plan and Illinois Department of Public Health, we are not able to offer summer camp as we have in the past.

Instead of multiple camp options, we are offering Summer Fun 2020 – a modified camp experience limited to 40 children to meet social distancing and various other safety guidelines during Phase 3 of Restore Illinois. We hope to expand this offering should we reach subsequent phases in the plan this summer.

What exactly is Summer Fun 2020?

  • Designed for children entering kindergarten through 6th grade
  • Begins the week of June 15
  • 1 week (5-day) full day (8:30am-5:30pm) sessions
  • Weekly fee: $150 residents / $188 nonresidents
  • Parents must drop off at 8:30am but can pick up any time before 5:30pm (weekly fees will not be prorated)
  • Groups of 10 with 2 group leaders (children grouped with siblings)
  • Designated indoor/outdoor space for each small group
  • Summer activities and games
  • Based out of the Recreation Center (240 Commerce Drive, Grayslake)

What Summer Fun Looks Like…

In compliance with Illinois Phase 3 guidelines, we can accept 40 registrants. A maximum of 10 campers per group with at least one group leader. Campers will be assigned designated indoor and outdoor spaces for the week. Siblings will be grouped together.

Camp will be based out of the Recreation Center. Indoor and outdoor small groups will do activities. There will not be traditional field trips to pools and other destinations; however, groups may take walking trips to nearby parks. If the weather is nice, parents will be provided advance notice to drop off/pick up their camper at Alleghany Park.

Summer Fun is Monday through Friday from 8:30am-5:30pm. Drop off must happen at 8:30am but pick up can happen anytime (however, weekly fees will not be prorated).

Pick up/drop off
Curb-side drop off and pick up will take place. Parents will stay in their vehicle for sign in/sign out and will not enter the facility.

Safety
Staff is required to wear face coverings. Children will be asked to wear face coverings indoors and when social distancing cannot be maintained outdoors. Disposable masks will be available for purchase each day for $1. Campers will be expected to maintain social distancing whenever possible.

Gloves are required for staff when assisting children with lunch, administering first aid, and cleaning. No toys from home are allowed.

Cleaning and sanitizing will take place on common touch surfaces every two hours. Hand sanitizer will be available in every room and brought with the counselors where ever they go. Frequent handwashing will be encouraged to all campers when indoors.

Lunch
Campers must bring a sack lunch and drink every day (no food or hot lunch will be available for purchase). Water fountains can be used to refill water bottles but not for drinking directly from. Lunch and snacks will take place outside (weather permitting); campers will bring a beach towel and be distanced 6 feet apart.

Registration

Priority registration will go to those people who had already registered for summer camps. Open registration begins June 2 and is first-come, first-served. Only 40 spots are available per session due to space constraints. Registration is available in-person at the Recreation Center, by fax, by mail, or the after-hours mailbox in the Rec Center parking lot. Online registration is not available at this time.
