We know that many residents are eager to find out how and if the Park District will be able to operate our summer day camps. With the Governor’s new Restore Illinois plan, we would not be able to offer any version of our day camps until we reach Phase Four. We are currently in Phase Two and it looks like we are at least 3-4 weeks away from Phase Three and another 3-4 weeks away from Phase Four. Therefore, we will be cancelling Session 1 (June 8-June 26) of day camp.
In the weeks ahead, we will be looking at IDPH and CDC guidelines in an effort to safely offer day camp. Adjustments to the camp maximums, locations and activities may be a part of the decision making process.
As disappointing as this news may be, we feel it is the right decision for the health and safety of the camp participants and staff.
