Summer Camps

For ages 3 to 18 years

The Geneva Park District offers traditional day camps, specialty camps, gymnastics camps, nature camps, and sports camps. Our camps focus on providing opportunities to all participants to grow personally by developing a positive self-image and learning to treat themselves and others with respect.

Camps teach participants to appreciate diversity, become better leaders, and develop a variety of specific skills and assets through various outdoor experiences. All of the camps incorporate the “Character Counts” philosophy and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. It is the primary goal of the Geneva Park District to make sure camp is a fun and enjoyable environment for each participant. The experiences and bonds that are formed at camp will last them a lifetime.

Traditional Camps

The Geneva Park District offers traditional day camp opportunities for children in preschool through 10th grade. Activities vary based on age, but include games, songs, crafts, swimming, sports, field trips, and more. Camp locations and times vary.

Nature Camps

Camp Coyote Nature Camps are held at Peck Farm Park. 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.
