Summer Camps

For ages 3 to 15 years

Our staff are working hard to ensure our programs are in compliance with the most recent guidelines. Any adjustments to these “guidelines” will be communicated thru weekly newsletters that will be sent to registered participants. Please view our Summer Camp Parent Manual for complete details. The manual can be found on our summer camp page at genevaparks.org

Additionally, the weekly newsletters will be emailed to families with details of what campers need for the week. We ask that you send minimal items with your child to camp.

2021 Summer Camp Priorities 

Safety…following new guidelines

Fun!…making the best of an unprecedented situation

Memories…experience the “new normal” for the first time in a positive environment

Camp Necessities Include:

  • Back pack to keep child’s belongings in.
  • Snacks (one for morning and one for afternoon), lunch (if your child will be attending full day),
    and a reusable water bottle. For the safety of all participants, food items must be peanut free.
  • Sunscreen / Bug Spray – Due to potential allergic reactions, all campers are required to supply
    their own bottle of spray on sunscreen and/or bug spray.
  • Attire – campers should wear socks and gym shoes every day.
  • Parents, please send your child with a face mask they are comfortable wearing. The district
    will have face masks available for participants, but they may be more comfortable wearing
    a mask they are familiar wearing.

COVID-19 – Our plan to protect campers and staff (more details will be provided in the Parent Manual)

  • Additional staff have been added to keep group sizes at 10 children, to provide designated staff for additional cleaning and sanitation, and to assist with participant needs.
  • Cleaning and Disinfection – Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfection and proper cleaning methods per Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidelines.
  • Communication with campers – at the beginning of camp, groups will hold trainings and demonstrations on behaviors and precautions campers should abide by to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including: hand washing, sanitizing hands, practice physical distancing in various settings, which symptoms to look out for and when to report them, coughing etiquette along with other camp policies and guidelines.
  • Temperatures will be taken upon entering camp for campers and staff (non-contact infrared digital thermometer).
  • Campers and staff will wear face masks during indoor activities and when maintaining physical distancing is not feasible due to area limitations.
    • We will host activities outdoors as much as possible as the restrictions for face masks are lessened when outside.
    • Groups will maintain physical distancing during activities.
    • Crafts, games and activities will all be similar to years past with slight adjustments to keep all campers physically distant during the day.
  • Campers and staff will be guided in practicing proper hand hygiene.
    • Instruction will be provided to campers to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before and after activities, or the use of alcohol
      based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol before and after activities.

Nature Camps

Summer Camp 2021 will certainly look a bit different this year and guidelines will change as we progress thru the different phases of the Restore Illinois plan. Our staff are working hard to be sure our programs are in compliance with the most recent guidelines. Safety is our top priority. 

Each day children will explore the wetlands, prairie, and gardens at Peck Farm Park through a variety of activities such as games, crafts, and stories. All campers will also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with butterflies in the Butterfly House! The emphasis for these outdoor camps is ‘hands-on’ exploration, so participants should be prepared to get a little muddy, dusty and grass stained. Half-day and full-day camp is available, as well as after camp care.  AM and PM Nature Camp sessions will follow the same themes but have different activities for a full day of fun! Campers of different ages may be joined together for some activities.

AM Camps have a snack at 10am and PM Camps have a snack at 1:45pm. Please provide campers with their own snack – must be peanut free.
Campers who are signed up for AM & PM Camp sessions will need to bring a lunch. Lunch will be designated from the hours of 11:45am-12:15pm.

Please contact Christine Kustra – Naturalist Camp Coordinator with any questions! (630) 262-8244 ckustra@genevaparks.com

Required Materials
Please wear gym shoes; bring a nut-free snack, reusable water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray, camp T-shirt, and a backpack each day. Please make sure your camper dresses appropriately, campers may get muddy, dusty, and paint/grass stained.
