SUMMER DAY CAMP

Camp begins Monday, June 6, 2022

Registration Begins Wednesday, March 23, 2022

The Huntley Park District offers endless opportunities for your child to have a fun and memorable camp experience. Our full-day camp program focuses on adventure, friendship, fun, exploration, discovery, safety and team building. Huntley Park District strives to provide a quality, exciting and unforgettable experience to all campers each session all summer long! Camps spend the majority of their camp day outdoors when weather permits. No matter what camp you choose for your child, they will have a great summer! This program is not licensed or regulated by DCFS, and is a qualified license-exempt program.  

For summer 2022, each camp session will be two weeks long.  At the present time we anticipate offering field trips and details are still being made.  Families will be allowed to request TWO week (5 consecutive days of the same week) "off" for vacation or other plans and receive a prorated fee.  To request this of our staff, once registered, please email the receipt of your registration to camp@huntleyparks.org with your request including specific dates of absence.  All requests are due two weeks prior to that session begin date.

At the time of registration a $50, non-refundable deposit is due and the remaining balance will be charged on the Tuesday before each camp session begins. 

Participants will register by grade they will be entering in the fall.

A camp swim program will be offered at 8:00a to coincide with camp.  This will be the only swim program we take campers to and from as others may conflict with other camp activities.  You may drop off your child before swim lessons to the camp site and our staff will bring them to their lesson and back to camp. Or you can drop off right at swim lesson time to the camp staff at the pool and they will take them to camp afterwards.  The process is not complete until you have submitted a  Camp Participant Transfer Permission Slip.  Camp Swim Lessons will be offered in the upcoming Summer Brochure.
