Summer Camp LogoSummer Camp Registration

Save the date!

It's never too early to think about Summer! After the last bell rings for the school year, the River Forest Park District is the place to be. We will be offering our popular summer camps, including half-day morning camps and afternoon specialty camps. The Summer Camp guide will be posted to the website by Monday, February 26. Resident registration for Summer Camps will begin on Monday, March 4 at 8:30 am. Register early, as summer camps traditionally fill up quickly.

Summer Camp Cancellations & Refunds

No refunds will be given for any camp, unless a cancellation is received no later than seven (7) days prior to the summer camp session start date. Any refundable cancellations will be charged a $10 service fee per session. For illness & injury, a doctor's note will be required in order to receive a refund minus a $10 cancellation fee. No refunds will be given if a participant is removed due to violation of the Park District's Give a High 5 Safety & Behavioral Policy. Refunds will be issued directly to the credit card used. Refunds for cash or check payment require Board approval and will be processed the following month.


Give a High Five Safety & Behavioral Policy

It is our intention to provide your child with a safe and secure environment. We attempt to create a warm, comfortable, and fun atmosphere that will make your child look forward to coming to the camp. In order to ensure the quality of this camp and safety of the campers and staff, each participant must be able to Give a High Five.

Give a High Five Safety & Behavior Policy

All camp sites have been designated nut-free. We are requesting your cooperation in partnering with us to ensure a safe environment for children with nut allergies. Parents with children that have a nut allergy are requested to notify the Park District as soon as possible by completing the Allergy Action Plan Form. If your child has any other known allergies, you must complete an Allergy Action Plan Form to keep on file.

Allergy Action Plan

A qualified Camp Director supervises each camp. All camp staff complete an extensive training program that includes supervision and safety techniques, activity development and first aid. Camp Directors are also certified in CPR, First Aid, and AED.
