The Downers Grove Park District is eager to reopen our programs, facilities and services as soon as possible! We are awaiting guidance from the State of Illinois, Center for Disease Control and Illinois Department of Public Health regarding Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan. In the meantime, we are working on plans and procedures to ensure the health and safety of our participants and staff. These plans will assist us in responding to any requirements or modifications needed to reopen as quickly as possible.
Once we are given direction from the State regarding Phase 3, the Park District will announce a reopening date and additional information to the community. It will take us several days to get up and running, but we are prepared for what lies ahead and are excited to be TOGETHER AGAIN! Thank you for your continued support and patience during this challenging time.
Note: Specific camp safety information per location will be emailed to each participant as we get closer to the start of camp – this information will include exact counselor to camper ratios, new drop off and pick up procedures, cleaning and disinfecting practices, handwashing requirements, indoor activity considerations, and illness policies.
Traditional Day Camp Payment Plan Billing info: For families who signed up for the Traditional Day Camp Payment Plan Option, you were not billed on May 15 for June camps. Instead, we will plan to bill 2 weeks prior to the determined start date. Again, information will be communicated to you as quickly as possible.
StayCamp Kits will be available throughout the summer! These StayCamp kits are an at home camp-in-a-box kits that includes 3 hours of activities for 3 days per week for a variety of different camps and age groups. Each box will include detailed plans and the supplies needed for the planned games, crafts and activities for you to do at home! Pre-registration will be required and a limited number of kits will be available each week. More information to come!
