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 (coming soon). 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.

Nature Camps

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 our Naturalist Camp Coordinator with any questions! (630) 262-8244
